How would you like to win one of 15 Arizona Centennial road signs to display in your school’s cafeteria, auditorium or elsewhere on campus?
The Arizona Department of Transportation is hosting an essay contest for students in sixth through 12th grades to determine which public schools will get an authentic Arizona Centennial road sign that was originally installed on the state highway system in 2012 to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Arizona gaining statehood.
The topic of the essay contest involves the five Cs of Arizona: Copper, Cattle, Cotton, Citrus, and Climate.
One essay per public school may be submitted by midnight on Jan. 31, 2023.
The designated school administrator or official will submit their school’s essay nomination through the contest website at azdot.gov/essay-contest.
Essays submitted from each participating school will be judged by a panel of ADOT employees based on originality, creativity, unique writing style and descriptive language.
