DART extends deadline for 15th annual transit poster contest


DART’s 15th Annual Transit Poster Contest deadline has been extended to Monday, April 20, 2015. “DART, Moving Forward.” is the theme for this year’s 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 growth of DART statewide bus service and the introduction of its bright, new logo displaying a positive message as we move forward delivering new and improved transit service, DART wants to use the opportunity to inform and promote the advantages of using public transit. Posters must be submitted to DART Poster Contest; Marketing Dept.; 119 Lower Beech Street; Wilmington, DE 19805 by April 20, 2015. 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. For details and contest instructions, please call (302) 576.6016, or visit DART’s website at http://www.DartFirstState.com.
