High school students who are enrolled during the 2016-2017 school year are eligible to enter the Valley Metro Design A Transit Wrap Student Art Contest. The contest deadline is Feb.17, 2017 at 5 p.m.
The contest winners will be announced in April. Participants will design a wrap (an advertisement that covers the entire vehicle) promoting public transit. If your designs are drawn by hand, it’s suggested you use markers instead of colored pencils because lines drawn by colored pencils may be too light and soft to reproduce accurately. You also need to use white paper or a poster board with a smooth finish because artwork made on textured paper won’t reproduce accurately when the design is transferred to the vinyl wrapping material.
Photographs are not allowed. But no matter if you do artwork by hand or on the computer, please use the template. It can be downloaded at www.valleymetro.org.
