Kids with an artistic bent have an opportunity to express themselves and perhaps win a prize by entering Land Line Magazine’s Trucking in America poster contest.

The Trucking in America poster contest is for children of professional truck drivers and trucking family relations.

Art projects aren’t just busy work for children.

Creating art, such as posters, promotes a child’s creativity. Child development experts at Learning say it also helps kids develop motor skills. Drawing and painting especially help kids develop visual-spatial skills.

Art projects like this poster contest also help kids analyze projects and topics and assists in developing executive function, which includes memory and mental flexibility and self-control, according to Harvard University Center for the Developing Child experts.
