SamTrans invites young artists to show their colors

SamTrans has launched this year's youth art contest, with the winners getting a whole lot of visibility. That's because the winning entries will be displayed as a wrap on a bus for an entire year, according to the transit agency.

The 15th annual Art Takes a Bus Ride contest encourages students in first through 12th grades to submit entries on the theme "The Power of SamTrans."

The winning art will also be featured on ad cards inside SamTrans buses.

Students have until the close of business on April 5 to submit entries, either via participating schools in San Mateo County or directly to the county's Office of Education at 101 Twin Dolphin Drive, Redwood City, CA 94065.
