FAIRMONT — The month of February is known for love, and one contest is letting people show off their best kisses.

Mannington Main Street is holding its fifth annual Sweetest Lips contest now until Feb. 14.

Rana Taylor, executive director of Mannington Main Street, said the contest is for the sweetest lips in Mannington.

“They fill out an entry form and they kiss the entry form with lipstick,” she said.

“We do it in city hall, and we have a special lip commission,” Taylor said. “The mayor and two others do the judging.”
