Each year, DART hosts a Student Art Contest that is open to students of all grade levels throughout North Texas. Students are asked to illustrate a given theme. The only limit is their imaginations. This year’s theme, “Everyday heroes ride DART,” honors the frontline workers who have been essential in helping North Texas persevere during the COVID crisis. Students interpreted the theme with color, composition and creativity.
Goyal’s colorful drawing shows first responders riding DART while community members thank them for helping over the past year.
