The Tennessee Department of Transportation recently asked 5th grade students across the state, in both public and private schools, to send in their artistic interpretation of The United States Interstate System: A Symbol of Freedom.

The winning entries will be displayed at the Tennessee State Museum in the James K. Polk Building at 505 Deaderick St., in Nashville, Tennessee, beginning on June 1, 2006. The posters will be a part of a special Interstate 50th Anniversary display hosted by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
