How cool would it be to see your child’s art project inside Valley Metro’s 2020 Transit Education Calendar?
Third graders across Maricopa County have a chance to express themselves artistically through Valley Metro’s 15th annual Cool Transit Stuff Art Contest. Through their artwork, students also help the environment as part of the pollution solution.
This year’s theme is Ride Valley Metro, it’s a new journey every day. “The contest is intended to connect with the community and show current and future transit riders how it’s fun to ride to great places in the Valley,” said Helen Romesburg, Valley Metro’s Transit Education Coordinator. It also shows how riding the bus and light rail, “helps Planet Earth one ride at a time.”
The students’ artwork appears in the Transit Education calendar. The calendar is printed by Valley Metro and is distributed free at events and presentations. The third graders' artwork is also posted on the school outreach web page at https://www.valleymetro.org/cool-transit-stuff-art-contest for the coming year.
All winners receive a prize package. The Best of Show winner also gets a pizza party for their class and a Valley Metro city bus visit.
Don’t wait. Start thinking about your art project because the deadline for submissions is October 18, 2019.
