The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is distributing free surplus copies of the 2011 official highway map to Kentucky classrooms.

These maps may be used in a variety of ways, including augmenting teaching methods, or they may simply be given to students.

In order to receive map copies, teachers should send their name, school, address, county and number of maps requested to Ryan Watts at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. He can be reached at (502) 564-3419.

Requests should be submitted by Feb. 17.
