DART First State announced today the winners of its 11th Annual Statewide Transit Theme Poster Contest. Seven winners will receive gifts and prizes from DART First State and one of its Business Partners, the Wilmington Blue Rocks. “DART’s 11th Annual Transit Poster Contest has proven to be the most successful to date. There were more than 379 entries in this year’s event” said Lerrissa Boardley, DART Marketing Specialist. “The Bike to the Bus theme seemed to have struck a chord with sixth through twelfth graders throughout the First State”.
Students researched the bus service and its various destinations and learned of the benefits of riding transit in Delaware. A First Place Winner from each grade was chosen along with an overall Grand Prize Winner. This year’s Grand Prize Winner is Maddy Deaton, a 9th Grader at Wilmington Christian in Hockessin. Maddy’s artwork will be placed on all DART First State buses statewide and her artwork will also be featured on our website, DartFirstState.com and in DART’s newsletters.
