If you are driving around Sylvan Lake over the next couple days, you may notice a lot of chalk work on sidewalks and streets around town.

This is all part of a mental health awareness program called "Let's Chalk About It".

Grade 4-6 students at elementary schools in Sylvan Lake, were provided with street chalk and the chance to spread some nice messages and happiness through their art work.
