Calling all North Texas students in kindergarten through 12th grade: Put your imagination to work by participating in DART’s 2017 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 prizes.

Use crayons, paint, markers, colored pencils or digital art to convey this year’s theme: “The adventure starts here.”

A Best of Show winner will be selected from all K-12 entries. 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’s website, and the artwork of first-place winners in the middle and high school categories will be featured at DART rail stations and inside DART trains.

Entries are due by 5 p.m. by February 29, 2017 and should be mailed or personally delivered to:
