The annual contest is held to increase public awareness about litter, to change attitudes and behaviors about littering and to educate Kentuckians about the Adopt-a-Highway program.

The contest is divided in to four age groups, ranging from 5 to 18. First- through third-place winners of each division will receive gift cards as well as have their work featured in the Adopt-a-Highway calendar.

Last year’s contest garnered about 1,400 entries.
