Artwork by three high school pupils will be used to promote the county's '20 is Plenty' road safety campaign.
Parklands High School Year 8 students Daniela Todorova, Rebecca Turner and Emily Atack are to see their artwork recognised by the highway authority.
The girls submitted their art work earlier this year to the Euxton Healthy Streets art poster competition.
Their work will now appear on a Lancashire County Council's Environment Directorate banner promoting the campaign.
Chairman of the Euxton Healthy Streets group County Councillor Mark Perks said: "This year the posters were voted on by primary school children and it was a great pleasure to be able to visit the students at Parklands High School, to present Daniela with the winner's trophy and Rebecca and Emily with their runners-up medals.
“Our Healthy Streets group has been running for three years involving residents, local groups, schools, partner organisations, the police neighbourhood team and the community in Euxton with organising a variety of events throughout the year that promotes cycling, road safety, healthier lifestyles and choices.
“The work of the Euxton Healthy streets groups has established a number of annual events such as cycle workshops, a family bike event, school arts competition and are currently working on the Ransnap Woods community footpath project.”
