Design a Transit Wrap Contest
13th Annual Valley Metro's Design a Transit Wrap Student Art Contest
2013 Winner: "Do the Ride Thing" by Richard Reid, McClintock High School, Tempe
High school art students across the Valley competed to have their artwork exhibited on a moving canvas for the 13th Annual Valley Metro Design a Bus Wrap contest. The winning design was produced by Richard Reid, a senior at McClintock High School, Tempe. His design was chosen because the judges loved the slogan “Do the Ride Thing” and its play on the popular phrase “do the right thing.” The wrap will remain on the bus and train for one year.
Reid’s design was chosen from 260 entries from high schools across the Valley.
This year’s judging panel was made up of representatives from cities, school districts, businesses and Valley Metro staff.
The Design a Transit Wrap contest is part of a larger effort to spread awareness about the benefits of public transit.
