DART calling for entries in annual art contest
North Texas students have until 5 p.m., Monday, Feb. 29, to enter Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DART) 2016 Student Art Contest with an original work created to illustrate the theme "DART to discovery."
They are encouraged to use their imagination by incorporating DART into an original 11x17 poster design, laid out horizontally, to be eligible to win $1,000 or other great cash prizes.
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.
DART Student Art Contest partners this year include The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), Dallas Contemporary, Dallas Zoo, Half Price Books, The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, NBC 5, Telemundo 39, The Dallas Morning News, Al Dia and Suburban Parent Magazines.
