FRANKFORT — Students still have time to submit their artwork for the Transportation Cabinet’s annual Adopt-a-Highway poster contest. The deadline has been extended to Oct. 23. Winning entries appear in the Adopt-a-Highway calendar.
Exposure to the Adopt-a-Highway program provides young people with a sense of ownership in Kentucky’s highways and stresses the importance of keeping Kentucky’s highways clean and litter free. The contest aims to encourage children not to litter and to help spread the message to others.
Parents, teachers and family members are asked to encourage children to participate in the contest. The entry form with the necessary certificate of authenticity can be obtained by contacting the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Office of Public Affairs.
The form also is available online at http://adopt-a-highway.ky.gov/. Click on “poster contest.”
Entries must be postmarked by the extended deadline, Oct. 23, 2009.
