Students encouraged to enter DART Student Art Contest

North Texas students in kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to put their imaginations to work by participating in DART’s 2017 Student Art Contest.

Local students are encouraged to use their imagination by incorporating DART into an original 11-by 17-inch poster design, laid out horizontally, to be eligible to win $1,000 or other great prizes. Crayons, paint, markers, colored pencils or digital art can be used to convey this year’s theme: “The adventure starts here.”

A Best of Show winner will be selected from all K-12 entries. Other prizes will be awarded to first-place winners and runner-ups 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. Tuesday Feb. 28 and should be mailed or delivered to:
