Illinois Tollway 2021 Map Cover Art Contest

This year we are marking the 10th year of our annual map cover art contest by recognizing the work of our Everyday Heroes. As Illinois and the nation continue to battle the economic challenges brought on by the pandemic, the Illinois Tollway is looking to recognize the Everyday Heroes that have kept our lives going through these challenging times through the artwork of talented students from across the region.

The contest will provide a venue for displaying young artist talents while also engaging students while raising awareness for the challenges brought on by the coronavirus and the everyday people – healthcare workers, delivery people, truckers hauling goods and supplies, teachers, employees at grocery stores and restaurants and many, many others who have stepped forward to become everyday heroes in our communities. Cover artwork should reflect the student’s perspective as it relates to their vision of the above theme.
