DART Kicks Off 17th Annual Transit Poster Contest

Wilmington --


"DART & Technology, Traveling into the Future." is the theme for DART's 17th Annual Transit Poster Contest. Open to school-age children Grades 6 through 12, the contest is designed to encourage students to learn more about public transportation and its benefits, as well as the chance to see their artwork featured by DART in various advertisements, promotions, or displays.



With continuous improvement and growth of transit services statewide, DART uses this opportunity to inform and promote the advantages of using public transit. Posters must be submitted by March 31, 2017, to DART Poster Contest; Marketing Dept.; 119 Lower Beech Street; Wilmington, DE 19805. Prizes and certificates will be provided by DART and its business partners.



Interested schools are being asked to conduct the contest within the appropriate grade levels at the school, and forward the entries to DART for judging. Individuals who wish to enter apart from their school may do so as long as they are in Grades 6 through 12.
