Statewide --


DART announced the winners of its 19th Annual Statewide Transit Poster Contest. Four winners will receive prizes from DART and its Business Partners.



Over 45 students from schools and/or after-school programs statewide participated in the contest, depicting their vision of this year's theme, "DART To Your Destination, Using the DART Transit APP!" Students researched the bus service and its various destinations as well as learned of the benefits of riding transit in Delaware. Students from 6th through 12th grade were invited to participate. A First Place Winner from each participating grade was chosen along with an overall Grand Prize Winner.



This year's Grand Prize Winner is Sulayma Matamoros, an 10th Grader from Sussex Technical High School. Sulayma's artwork will be placed on all DART buses statewide, and will be placed in several public buildings for thousands to see and appreciate. Her poster will also be featured on DART's website, DartFirstState.com, the Heart of DART Happenings, in other business partners' publications and on DART's Social Media.



The 1st Place Winners are: Deshawn Dixon Jr., 6th Grade; Providence Creek Academy, Ms. Guillebeau; Yazmeen Benson, 7th Grade; Skyline Middle School, Ms. Hackett; Miriah Tomlinson, 8th Grade; Skyline Middle School, Ms. Hackett; Sulayma Matamoros, 10th Grade; Sussex Technical High School, Mrs. Gehrke.
