A Marcos de Niza High School student, Sydney Storment, is the winner of Valley Metro’s 21st Annual Design a Transit Wrap contest. Her artwork, titled Together We Go, will be featured on a bus and light rail train for one year.
Storment’s design was chosen out of nearly 50 entries submitted by high school students across Maricopa County.
The Design a Transit Wrap contest encourages high school students to create artwork that promotes public transit from their own point of view. Throughout the 21 years the contest has existed, the message or theme of the student artwork has inspired people to take transit for a variety of reasons.
Kimberly Nunez, also a Marcos de Niza High School junior, was awarded second place and Pinnacle High School freshman, Pranathi Arum, placed third.
