I Heart My RTD Student Art Contest:

The “I Heart My RTD” Student Art Contest partners RTD with APS and Cherry Creek Middle Schools to promote the benefits of public transportation to our youth in a fun and creative way.

More than 2,400 middle school students from the APS and Cherry Creek school districts are competing for a chance to have their artwork displayed on the side of a 40-foot RTD bus. Each participating school selected two finalists. The two finalists from Columbia Middle School are: Helen Do (7th grade) and Aaru Wates (8th Grade).  Now, the community will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites!

Online voting begins Oct. 17 and continues through Oct. 24. Cast your vote online at rtdartcontest.com and encourage your friends and family to vote! One grand prize winner from each district will be announced on Oct. 31. 

The winners will work directly with RTD's creative team to transform their art into a bus design. A celebratory event will be held with the schools where the wrapped bus will be unveiled. All remaining entries will be featured inside RTD's buses, so keep an eye out for some great art on your favorite route.

We want an RTD bus designed with a Columbia artist’s design.  Please tell all friends and family members to help vote daily!
