What will the future of transportation look like? Engineers at the N.C. Department of Transportation want young people to show them through artwork.

In conjunction with updating the state’s long-range transportation plan, the NC Moves 2050 Plan, members of NCDOT’s transportation planning division have established the NC Moves 2050 Poster Contest.

In its inaugural year, the contest theme is “Leaping into the Future.”

All students who live in and/or attend school in North Carolina and were born between Jan. 1, 2001, and Dec. 31, 2014, are encouraged to participate by submitting their own artwork.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three artists across three age groups determined as of Dec. 31, 2019: junior (ages 5-9), intermediate (10-13), and senior (14-18).

All entries must be turned in or mailed and postmarked no later than Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020, and must include a Certificate of Authenticity.

Artwork may be dropped off at NCDOT Highway Division Offices across the state or mailed to:

NC Moves 2050 Poster Contest
N.C. Moves 2050
1554 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27699
