ARTists for PAL Contest Deadline June 3

May 24, 2013

The deadline to turn in designs for the ARTists for PAL bus design contest is quickly approaching! June 3 is the last day middle and high school students can submit designs. The winning design will be used to wrap the outside of one ART bus that will travel throughout the County.

We're asking students to design the outside of an ART bus using the theme "Share Our Streets -- Be a PAL," Arlington's pedestrian, cycling and driving safety initiative. All middle and high school students who live or attend school in Arlington County are eligible to enter the contest. 

The contest will help promote both County Board Chairman J. Walter Tejada's "Share Our Streets -- Be a PAL" safety initiative as well as Arlington Transit's iRide program which encourages teens to use transit, bike and walk.

How the Contest Works

All designs are due by Monday, June 3, 2013, and must use the theme of "Share Our Streets -- Be a PAL." A panel will then vote to narrow down the submissions to three finalists. Starting June 10, County residents can vote for their favorite design online. The design with the most votes will be used to wrap one ART bus which will be revealed at the County Fair in August. All designs received will be put on display inside of ART buses for the public to view.
