Have you seen a bus covered with paint?
The Regional Transportation Commission prefers its buses be covered with art instead of graffiti, so it is sponsoring an anti-graffiti art contest. The winning entries will be featured on the side of a bus for up to a year.
Fifth-grade students can submit artwork with the theme of “you spray, you pay” through Oct. 25. The winning artwork will be unveiled at a special event in December.
Some of the art will also be used inside transit vehicles, the commission said.
The competition is also sponsored by the Southern Nevada Graffiti Coalition, Metro Police’s D.A.R.E. and graffiti programs and Vector Media.
The competition is open to all Clark County fifth-graders. Entries should be colorful, on a horizontal 11-inch-by-17-inch paper or poster and have an entry form on the back.
Entries should be delivered to the RTC offices, 600 S. Grand Central Parkway, Suite 350, Las Vegas, NV, 89106.
