Youth Art Contest
VIA holds an annual Youth Art Contest that kicks off the first Monday of March for school children of all levels (Pre-K through 12) in the San Antonio area. That is when official poster boards provided by VIA are available for teachers/parents to pick up at VIA headquartes. Any medium may be used.
Each year, VIA provides a theme for the children to illustrate for the contest. First and second place winners are chosen from each grade level from the thousands of entries that are received. A Best of Show winner is also chosen, and all the winners have their art works displayed inside the Classroom on Wheels bus for an entire year. The winners are also honored with an awards luncheon, and each of them receives a trophy and special prizes.
In years past, the Best of Show design has been used by VIA for various youth education program materials, including book covers distributed in the public schools, posting on the sides of VIA buses, and even as the design for the Classroom on Wheels.
All entries are put on display throughout VIA’s bus fleet for a period of one month. Entries cannot be returned. For more information on this annual art contest contact VIA.
