DART First State Kicks Off
13th Annual Transit Poster Contest
“DART, Your Community Connector” is the theme for DART First State’s 13th Annual Transit Poster 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 First State in various advertisements, promotions, or displays.
With continuous growth of Delaware communities, DART wants to use the opportunity to inform and promote the advantages of using public transit. Increased awareness of Delaware’s public transit system informs new and current commuters, that DART is and can be their connection to and from their communities and surrounding neighborhoods, within the state of Delaware. Posters must be submitted by April 19, 2013, to DART First State Poster Contest; Marketing Dept.; 119 Lower Beech Street; Wilmington, DE 19805.
Prizes and certificates will be provided by DART First State 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 First State 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 www.DartFirstState.com.
