Contest seeks Fayette student entries to name road to jail
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
