MOVrocks school project turns into social media sensation

WILLIAMSTOWN, W.Va. (WTAP) - Something that started as a school project at Veritas Classical Academy in Marietta has morphed into a huge social media following.

A group of teachers at the school has created MOVrocks. It has almost 2,000 members on its group page on Facebook.

Since mid-April, they've put thousands of painted rocks all over the Mid-Ohio Valley. If you find one, you can either re-hide it or keep it, depending on the instructions written on the rock. Then, you share a photo of it on social media using #MOVrocks.

"One of our main goals was to spread positivity and encouragement to anybody that finds one. As long as people are enjoying it, we'll keep doing it," said Holly Hamrick of MOVrocks.

"Just planting good seeds throughout the community, these rocks are a good way to do that," said Katie Nestor of MOVrocks.

You can jump in on the fun too. All you need is acrylic paint and a clear sealant.
