The 2020 contest featured 291 entries from across the state, with participants ranging in age from five to 16. The top finishers in each of four age divisions receive a $100 gift card, while second- and third-place finishers each receive a $50 gift card.

The KTYC frames and displays all first- through third-place winning artwork at its office building in Frankfort, KY.

“A Better Kentucky includes being a cleaner Kentucky,” noted Governor Andy Beshear (D) in a statement. “These students have done great work in using their creativity to remind us all how to be good neighbors by keeping our neighborhoods, parks, and highways clean. I’m proud that our youngest citizens are promoting a cleaner Kentucky.”

“Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 Adopt-a-Highway Art Contest,” added KYTC Secretary Jim Gray. “I was so impressed by their artwork. It inspires us all to have a ‘Litter free Kentucky’ and cleaner highways.”
