DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (AP) -- Voters who want a favorite piece of art to grace the cover of the 2014 Illinois Tollway map may vote online.

Ten finalists' entries in the student art contest may be viewed on the Tollway's website. Voting continues through Nov. 1.

They are also on display at Tollway oases.

Contest sponsors besides the Tollway are Blick Art Materials and U.S. Equities. They invited high school students in the 12 counties served by the Illinois Tollway to submit original works of art based on this year's theme -- work zone safety.

There were 65 entries from 16 schools from Chicago to Rockford.

The top four entries will move onto the next level of judging. The winner and three runners up will be selected by a panel of judges.
