Share your explorations in DART's Student Art Contest
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is encouraging local students to share their DART explorations in its 2015 Annual Student Art Contest hosted with community partners The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) and Dallas Contemporary and media partners NBC 5 and Telemundo 39.
Kindergarten through 12th grade students will compete for a $1,000 grand prize and the opportunity to have their artwork on featured on DART buses. Other prizes will be awarded to first place winners and runner-ups in different grade-level categories.
The theme for this year's contest is "Explore Your World with DART." Students are asked to share some of the unique places they've discovered riding DART — or the destinations yet to be explored. Contest submissions are due by February 27 and all winners' artwork will be exhibited beginning Thursday, April 16 at the DMA.
Get detailed contest instructions at DART.org/artcontest or by contacting Jessica Lennon, Manager of Community/Education Outreach at [email protected] or 214-749-2582.
