DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (AP) — This year’s Illinois Tollway high school art contest will honor the Illinois State Police.
Tollway officials announced this week that the winning design will appear on the cover of the 2020 tollway map.
The art contest is presented with Blick Art Materials and MB Real Estate .
Several Illinois State Police officers have been killed in the line of duty this year. Two died while working on the 294-mile tollway system.
Officials say students who enter the contest should “illustrate the service and sacrifice” of state troopers. Art work could focus on how the state police helps motorists through its principles of integrity, service and pride; how it promotes traffic safety or how it serves the tollway with motorcycle, K-9, and detective units.
