Students in Fayette County schools have been asked to help name the road that will lead to a new jail.

Those eligible to submit ideas for a chance to win a $200 gift card are students in grades eight through 12 in the 2014-15 school year. The road will lead to the $32 million Justice and Rehabilitation Center, which is to be built in an industrial park off Mt. Braddock Road in Dunbar and North Union townships.

Entries are to be submitted by email to no later than 9 a.m. Friday. Students should include their name, address, phone number, grade and school with their entries.

Fayette 911 will review the suggestions, which will then be given to the prison working group for selection of the winning entry.

The winner will receive a $200 gift card, to be presented at a meeting of the county commissioners. The card will be purchased by the group with personal contributions.
