The contest is open to students enrolled in public, private or home school and due Oct. 20, 2023. The entry form, evaluation, criteria and other information can be found at

KYTC will divide the contest into four age groups: 5-8, 9-11, 12-14, and 15-18. Winners of each age group will receive a $100 gift card for first place and a $50 gift card for second and third place. In addition, first through third place winners will see their artwork featured on KYTC’s social media and their prints displayed at Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in Frankfort.
