The annual Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Student Art Contest has begun accepting individual entries from North Texas students in grades K-12, including more eligible grades than in the past. The theme of this year’s contest is “Everyday Heroes Ride DART,” giving young artists the chance to salute the hometown heroes that have kept our community going during the pandemic. Winning artwork will be featured on DART rail stations, buses and inside trains, as well as at the Dallas Museum of Art, Love Field Airport and on DART’s website. Prizes will be awarded to first place winners and runners-up in different grade-level categories.
