STUDENT ART CONTEST: DEADLINE MAY 31, 2018
Saskatoon Transit is striving to create a sense of community and a youthful atmosphere by hosting its 1st Student Art contest for Grades 3 and 7. These grades were chosen as they both discuss public transportation as part of their curriculum. Two winners will be chosen, one from each grade to have art displayed on city Transit buses throughout the summer.
The theme is Active Transportation and all the modes that exist in Saskatoon. (I.e. public transit, cycling, walking, car sharing, taxis, car-pooling, skate boarding etc… and their combination with each other). Winners will be chosen for how well their art fits the theme and “best captures the spirit of active transportation.” Please ask your teacher if you have any questions about the rules.
