The design, planning, and creation of the Charles City County LOVEwork was done by more than 100 fifth- and sixth-graders at the Charles City County Elementary School. These students, led by their art teacher, Elysa Harris, started the project at the at the beginning of 2016/2017 school year by brainstorming ideas of what best represents their county. Students submitted concept sketches and after that the final design emerged. All students taking part in the design and creation autographed the back of the sign with their handprint and name. Each of the four letters represents a different part of the county with the common theme of the outdoors. The children truly showcased their talent in this project.
· L – A tractor made of recycled bottle caps represent the county’s rich agricultural heritage.
· O – A cyclist wearing a bike helmet with the school's Tiger Pride logo represents the Virginia Capital Trail. (27 of the trail’s 52 miles flow through the county)
· V – Charles City County is home to two beautiful rivers, the James and the Chickahominy. Fishing and boating are natural pastimes here.
· E – The deer represents the pastime of hunting and nature.
