Ninth- grader Amber Li, a student at the Hockaday School, in Dallas, is the best in show winner in the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) annual student art contest.
Her work, based on the theme "Paint the town _______. ride DART" was selected from 1,174 entries from students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
She received a $1,000 cash prize and her winning art is being displayed on the side of a DART bus traveling across the agency's 13-city service area. The DART student art contest is a 22-year tradition that helps promote the use of public transportation.
