Transit vs. Driving, Why Transit is the Right Fit is the theme for DART First State’s 14th Annual Transit Poster Contest. Open to school-age children in grades six through 12, the contest is designed to encourage students to learn more about public transportation and its benefits, as well as give them 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 customers that DART is and can be the right fit.
Posters must be submitted by Monday, March 31, to DART First State Poster Contest, Marketing Dept., 119 Lower Beech St., Wilmington, DE 19805. Prizes and certificates will be provided by DART First State and its business partners.
Interested schools are asked to conduct the contest in 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 six through 12. For details and contest instructions, call 302-576-6016, or go to www.DartFirstState.com.
