Celebrating Riders of All Ages
DART's Transit Education team was busy this spring presenting its two signature, annual events: the Student Art Contest and the Older Americans Month Information & Health Fair.
Student Art ContestOn April 29, students, families, friends, teachers, members of the creative community and DART staff gathered at the Dallas Museum of Art to celebrate the young people whose art best illustrated the theme, "The adventure starts here."
This year's art contest attracted the attention of 171 schools, and from these schools came 2,246 individual entries. Judges selected 28 winners, including this year's Best of Show: Caitlin Savage from Plano East Senior High School.
DART featured Caitlin's artwork on the side of a DART bus, which will travel across the agency's 13-city service area through September. And for the second year, Dallas Love Field displayed the student artwork until mid-July.
Community partners for this year's art contest included the Dallas Museum of Art, Half Price Books, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Dallas Zoo and Dallas Contemporary. Media partners were NBC5, Telemundo 39, Al Día, The Dallas Morning News and Suburban Parent.
