TUCSON, Ariz. — A colorful contest is underway for kids in Arizona.

The Arizona Department of Transportation launched the "Keep it Grand" anti-litter art challenge last week, a way to remind the public to keep Arizona highways clean.

Young artists are encouraged to create a unique design that encourages stashing your trash during outdoor activities until it can be properly disposed of.

To participate, simply send in a picture of a sidewalk chalk drawing, or another type of drawing to, just make sure the image says "Keep it Grand" somewhere on it.

ADOT says they will post every picture they receive by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, to a slideshow that will be viewable on its website.
