The Laketran (OH) Design a Bus Wrap student art contest is now open for entry submittals. The theme for this year’s contest is Laketran’s 50th anniversary.

Middle school and high school students from Lake County, OH, are eligible to enter by submitting original artwork. Participants are encouraged to create a design that either promotes public transit, Lake County, or highlights Laketran’s upcoming 50th anniversary.

One student’s winning design will be featured on a 24-foot Dial-a-Ride bus wrap for one year and travel throughout the county.

The contest is open to middle school and high school students from Lake County or students enrolled in a Lake County school, art school or homeschooled during the 2023-2024 school year. Entries are due April 1, 2024. Winners will be announced in April and the bus wrap will be unveiled by early May. Those interested in participation can learn more about the contest and prizes on the Laketran website.

“We received over 150 entries last year and are excited to be able to offer this contest to our Lake County student artists again this year,” Laketran spokesperson Julia Schick said. “Many transit systems incorporate public art into their transit properties or vehicles, because it’s a great way to share art in the community.”

Project sponsor Avery Dennison, a Lake County-based manufacturer and distributor of pressure-sensitive adhesive materials, makes the contest possible by donating the vinyl material used to wrap the vehicle each year.

The 2023 art contest winners, along with additional entries, are on display at the Frank J. Polivka transit center at Lakeland Community College and open to the public Monday through Saturday.
