Winners Announced in Fall 2022 Adopt-A-Highway Art Contest
From Stephanie Hunt
Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear announced on Wednesday that students from seven Kentucky counties were top finishers in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's (KYTC) 2022 Adopt-A-Highway Art Contest, in which young Kentuckians play an active role in promoting a clean environment.
Carly Harlow, a student at Metcalfe Middle School, took first place in the 9-11 age category.
As a group, the students represented 10 schools and one home school. Their works of art were selected from nearly 300 entries from across Kentucky. Participants ranged in age from 5 to 18.
The top finishers in each of four age divisions will receive a $100 gift card, while second- and third-place finishers will each receive a $50 gift card. First- through third-place recipients for all age groups will have their pieces displayed at the Transportation Cabinet Office Building in Frankfort.
"A cleaner Kentucky is a Better Kentucky," Gov. Beshear said. "In the same way, clean communities are strong communities. These students are to be commended for putting their talents to work to remind us all of the importance of keeping clean the roadways that connect our communities. I'm proud that our youngest citizens are taking action to promote a cleaner Kentucky."
Kentucky Transportation Secretary Jim Gray also offered congratulations to all the contest participants. "These students have set an example for us all," Secretary Gray said. "They have performed a public service by promoting the message that a 'Litter free Kentucky' and cleaner highways is a responsibility we all share."
The 2022 contest winners are:
5-8 age category
9-11 age category
12-14 age category
15-18 age category
The Adopt-A-Highway program is a statewide volunteer effort to reduce roadside litter and keep Kentucky's highways beautiful. Litter-free roads promote a clean environment, foster civic pride, and save taxpayer dollars.
