Enter Your Art in DART’s 2020 Student Art Contest by Feb. 28!

2019 Best in Show winner with DART president.

Showcase your talent and win cool prizes in the DART 2020 Student Art Contest! This fun, annual event is a chance for students in K-12 to create original artwork and compete for a chance to have their art on DART buses and trains, plus cash and other prizes. Students must enter by Feb. 28, 2020.

The DART 2020 Student Art Contest is open to public school, private school and home-schooled students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The designs must be original work by the student and should illustrate the theme “Paint the Town ____. Ride Dart.” You fill in the blank! One entry is allowed per student (no group entries are allowed).

There are so many possibilities. Choose your favorite rail line color. Go Green for the environment. Choose a word or color you like – you can paint the town “fun,” “adventurous,” “silver” or anything else. For inspiration, check out last year’s winners here or explore all the places DART goes here.
