The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced the beginning of the 2012 Adopt-a-Highway Poster Contest.  Students from across the Commonwealth are invited to submit creative works for use in the Adopt-a-Highway calendar for 2013. The contest is open to all Kentucky students of elementary, middle and high school age.

Exposure to the contest and 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 free of litter. The contest is aimed at educating and encouraging children not to litter and to spread the message to others.

“Through this program the cabinet hopes to increase environmental awareness and stewardship among children and to bring about a change in attitudes and behaviors concerning a growing problem with litter,” said Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock. 

“With your child’s help a change in attitudes could result in a pleasing change of scenery.  We encourage all students to participate in this worthy contest,” Hancock said.

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 Sept. 30, 2012.
