FRANKFORT, KY (FOX19) – Students from Randall K. Cooper High School in Boone County, Warren Central High School in Bowling Green, Whitney Young Elementary in Louisville and Strode Station Elementary in Clark County took first place in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s 2011 Adopt-a-Highway poster contest.
“The purpose of the contest is to increase environmental awareness among children,” said Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock. “We hope to educate our young people about the damaging effects of litter, and to change attitudes and behaviors about littering.”
The first-place winner in each of four categories receives a $100 savings bond, while second-, and third-place winners each receive a $50 savings bond. All the winners receive framed prints of their posters.
