Since 1994 we have been gathering VLBA data on the sample to measure superluminal jet speeds and to better understand the parsec-scale kinematics of AGN jets. We have obtained 1.4GHz VLA A configuration data on 57 of these sources to investigate whether the extended luminosity of blazars is correlated with parsec-scale jet speed and also to determine what other parsec-scale properties are related to extended morphology, such as optical emission line strength and gamma-ray emission. We present images and measurements of the kiloparsec scale emission from the VLA data, which will be used in subsequent statistical studies of the MOJAVE sample. Description: The observations were made with the VLA in the A configuration, which yields a typical restoring beam of 1.5"(FWHM), at an observing frequency of 1.4GHz. The data were recorded in spectral line mode, with eight channels per IF. The observations took place during filler time on six separate dates between 2004 September 19 and 2004 November 24.
