DART Student Art Contest Accepting Entries




North Texas youth have an opportunity compete in the annual Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) 2018 Student Art Contest for budding artists in kindergarten through 12th grade. Their original works of art should reflect this year’s theme: “Oh, The Places DART Goes.”

Participating students can win great prizes, including a cash award. A Best of Show winner will be selected from all entries. Other prizes will be awarded to first-place winners and runners-up in different grade-level categories. In addition, winners will have their artwork featured on DART’s website, and the artwork of first-place winners in the middle and high school categories will be featured at DART rail stations and inside DART trains.

Entries must be 11-by-17-inch poster design, laid out horizontally and mailed or delivered by 5 p.m., February 28, to Jessica D. Lennon, DART’s Transit Education Program, 2018 Student Art Contest, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, 1401 Pacific Avenue, P.O. Box 660163, Dallas, TX 75266-0163.

Winners will be announced by March 21—all artwork becomes the property of DART and may be used with appropriate credit to the artist. Students that submit their artwork early will receive a special prize
