Calling all young adults in the Treasure Valley that LOVE to get artsy--the Ada County Highway District is hoping that you can come to the rescue!

Let's be honest, there is absolutely nothing exciting about your every day "street sweeper" unless your street drains are clogged and you absolutely need some relief. This is about to change as the "bland" white trucks that drive around town and slow down traffic as they sweep, are looking to get spiced up by a local, artistic hero!

Think you have what it takes? The theme of this art contest, which COULD land your design on the side of several Ada County Highway District Street Sweepers, is "Seasons of Transportation".  What does that look like to you? Snow flakes falling from the sky or perhaps orange cones lining the streets of Boise?
