Show your creative side in DART’s Student Art Contest


Carrollton first-grader Sanjana Arudala took home the Best of Show prize last year and her artwork was displayed on buses across the Dallas region.

Calling all North Texas kindergarten through 12th grade students: Put your imagination to work this holiday break by participating in DART’s 2016 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 cash prizes.

Students are encouraged to use crayons, paint, markers, colored pencils or digital art to convey this year’s theme: DART to Discovery.

A Best of Show winner will be selected from each grade level. 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 buses and on DART’s website.

Entries are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, February 29, 2016 and should be mailed or personally delivered to:
