Kentucky Personnel Cabinet accepting entries for 2020 Public Service Recognition Poster contest


The Kentucky Personnel Cabinet is accepting entries for the 2020 Public Service Recognition Poster contest.

The annual contest combines visual arts and education by encouraging students across Kentucky to craft colorful works of art as they explore the various roles and value of public service.

“This is a great opportunity for students to not only honor those who make a difference in the lives of Kentuckians every day but also discover career opportunities within the public service sector,” said Gov. Andy Beshear.

This year’s theme, “Making a Difference” is focused on highlighting the positive impact public service workers have on communities throughout Kentucky.

Each submission will be judged by a committee and winners will be selected following the entry deadline of April 10.

Submissions will be judged in three categories, ages 6-9, 10-13 and 14-18.

Winners of each category will receive the following prizes, including an invitation to a special ceremony on May 8 at the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort where they can participate in a range of recreational and wildlife learning experiences:

• First place – $50
• Second Place – $25
• Third Place – $10

In 2019, more than 1,200 students representing 100 schools throughout Kentucky participated.

The award ceremony runs concurrently with Public Service Recognition Week, a national celebration of civil servants during the first week of May established in 1985.
