Calling all budding artists: DART Hosting Annual Student Art Contest

They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and North Texas students have an opportunity to illustrate that in Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s 2018 Student Art Contest.

This annual competition is open to 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 will be eligible to win great prizes, including a cash award.

A Best of Show winner will be selected from all K-12 entries. Other prizes will be awarded to first-place winners and runner-up’s 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 are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018 and should be mailed or personally delivered to:

Jessica D. Lennon DART’s Transit Education Program 2017 Student Art Contest Dallas Area Rapid Transit 1401 Pacific Ave. P.O. Box 660163 Dallas, TX 75266-0163

Winners will be announced by March 21, 2018, and all artwork becomes the property of DART and may be used with appropriate credit to the artist. Students who submit their artwork early will receive a special prize!
