Where does Valley Metro take you? Six hundred students across the Valley shared their favorite destinations when they entered the 13th Annual Valley Metro Cool Transit STUFF 3rd Grade Art Contest.
Third grade students across the Valley were asked to design artwork showcasing this year’s contest theme, Valley Metro Connecting People to Places. The winning art, created by Harshita Rajesh, a Basis Peoria Primary student, includes a drawing of a Valley Metro bus taking riders to the zoo with the message “Share Fun. Save Earth.” Harshita’s art is featured on the cover of the 2018 Valley Metro Transit Education calendar.
The contest is part of a program that educates youth about safely riding public transportation.
Congratulations to this year’s winners
