The City of Richardson and the Richardson Kiwanis Club are hosting an art contest to select five original, wildflower-themed designs that will be featured as vinyl wraps on traffic signal boxes at key intersections throughout the community. The contest is open to individual artists residing in the city or students attending a school located within Richardson. In addition to beautifying and colorfully enhancing city streetscapes, the artwork will also showcase local Richardson artists in a new way and further a sense of community pride.

Winners will be determined according to three main criteria—creativity, adherence to the wildflowers theme and artistic merit—and each selected artist will also receive a $100 stipend, a plaque and be recognized for their efforts in the City’s communications materials.

All completed applications and artwork submissions are due by Monday, Feb. 28 no later than 5 p.m.
