The second Youth Art billboard competition took place in Bloomington and Indianapolis, resulting in four billboards in each city. Eight different artworks made by students in grades k-12 responded to the question “What would you like to tell your community?” Winning themes included the effects of pollution on our environment, diversity, and the importance of community involvement.
