Art Takes a Bus Ride 2018
Annual Art Competition for San Mateo County Students Grades 1 through 6 is sponsored by the San Mateo County Transit District and the San Mateo County Office of Education.
One winner has been chosen from each grade level, and their artistry is publicly displayed on the Art Bus for a year as it makes its way through various routes of the county. The reveal was held on June 6, 2018 at the San Mateo County Transit District office in San Carlos before the students, their teachers and families, and the Board of Trustees.
The 2018 competition's theme was: The Wild Side of SamTrans. We had 266 submissions from public and private schools in San Mateo County.
The 2018 bus reveal was held on June 6th at the monthly Transit District Board Meeting. The six students attended with their families, teachers, and principals. They received framed ad cards from Sam Trans, which are the actual ad cards being placed inside all of the buses in the county. So no matter what bus people ride, they will have the opportunity to see the winning submissions on the inside. Next, the students and teachers were brought into the board meeting and officially presented with a Certificate of Achievement from the board members. Finally, the entire meeting broke for recess from the meeting chambers to escort the students down to the parking area where everyone was treated to seeing the Art Bus! One bus is decorated in the students' artwork on the outside of the bus with a wrap. The students were very proud of how the bus looked and took many photos by "their" bus.
