trans adopt FRANKFORT, Ky. (8/23/14) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced the beginning of the 2014 Adopt-a-Highway Poster Contest.

Students across the Commonwealth are invited to submit creative works for use in the Adopt-a-Highway calendar for 2015. 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.

"Increasing environmental awareness and stewardship among children is the goal of this program. Our hope is to bring about a change in attitudes and behaviors concerning a growing problem with litter," Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. "A pleasing change of scenery can be accomplished with your child's help."

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 KYTC's Office of Public Affairs at (502) 546-3419.

The form is also available online at http://adopt-a-highway.ky.gov/, where you can click on the "Art Contest Deadline" link.

Entries must be postmarked by Sept. 30, 2014.
