For her exemplary work, Kimber will have her artwork project displayed on a billboard on Interstate 29 near the 41st Street exit.

In addition to her billboard gracing one of the highest traffic areas within the city, Kimber also received a mini billboard of her art project, so that she'll always be able to remember this momentous occasion, along with a $25.00 check for herself, and another $100.00 check for her entire classroom.

If you're wondering, the theme of Kimber's billboard is, "Stay Alert. Don't Get Hurt."

A very good reminder for every driver and road construction worker as we celebrate "National Work Zone Awareness Week", all this week throughout the country.
