DART announced the winners of its 16th Annual Statewide Transit Poster Contest. Three winners will receive prizes from DART and its Business Partner, Wilmington Blue Rocks.
Twenty-five students from schools and/or after-school programs statewide participated in the contest, depicting their vision of this year’s theme, “Ride More. Save More. Do More.” Students researched the bus service and its various destinations and 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. There were no entries for 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades this year.
This year’s Grand Prize Winner is Sundene Lodge, a 6th Grader from Tug Academy Home School. Sundene’s artwork is featured on our website, http://www.dartfirststate.com/information/programs/index.shtml and will be placed on all DART buses statewide and in DART’s newsletters.
The 1st Place Winners by grade are:
6th Grade – Sundene Lodge – Tug Academy Home School, Mrs. Lodge
7th Grade – Lydia Klecan – Smyrna Middle School, Mr. Beaumont
8th Grade – Trey Lodge – Tug Academy Home School, Mrs. Lodge
All first place winners will receive a number of prizes from DART and be recognized at a future Wilmington Blue Rocks game.
