Chalk the Walk winners create works of chalk art

Overland Park is proud to announce the winning submissions for this year’s Chalk the Walk program.

Chalk the Walk encourages members of the community to use chalk to brighten up their neighborhoods with drawings that anyone can see.

Residents were able to pick up a free bundle of chalk in August to draw their designs.

This year’s Chalk the Walk included a contest with categories:

  • Best Youth Art
  • Best Use of the Theme
  • Best Use of a Sidewalk Blemish
  • Best Uplifting Work of Art
  • People‚Äôs Choice

A committee of neighborhood leaders selected the winners of the first four categories. The “people’s choice” category was open to a public vote online.

The voting may have ended, but you can still participate in Chalk the Walk. Use sidewalk chalk to share an uplifting or fun message in your neighborhood. Share it with us on social media by using the hashtag #ChalkTheWalkOP.
