Students Invited to Enter Rain Barrel Design Contest
Local students are putting their artistic skills on the map. It's all part of the Illinois Department of Transportation's 2012 Rain Barrel Design Competition.
The goal is to educate students about storm water management and showcase green efforts.
The contest is open to all 3rd-12th graders. They must submit an artistic design that can be painted onto a rain barrel.
Fifty designs will be chosen in November.
