Chris Trumpower and Nick Seibert came up with a mural theme that carries a message of unity.
The 8-foot by 30-foot mural by Career Studies Center art students will cover the north wall of the railroad overpass across from the new Washington County Commuter bus stop on West Washington Street.
Paintings of five children of different races and genders will be painted beneath the canopy of a symbolic rainbow.
Within that rainbow are the words "Be Colorblind.'' On either side of the children are the messages "Seal Your Children's Fate'' and "Teach Them Not To Hate.''
While Seibert, 16, and Trumpower, 17, both South Hagerstown High School students, came up with the idea for the mural, the other junior students of Career Studies art teacher Amy Deboinville concurred.
