TARC is holding a competition for children to design a wrapper for one of its buses to celebrate the spirit of volunteerism and being a good neighbor.

More info from the city:

The Design-a-Bus contest is open to all elementary and middle school students in Jefferson, Oldham and Bullitt counties in Kentucky and Floyd and Clark counties in southern Indiana. Twelve winners will be chosen to have their posters displayed on the Kids Salute TARC bus and will be invited to a special party hosted by TARC in the spring, where they will also receive prizes donated by local businesses. Artwork becomes the property of TARC.

Students are encouraged to create posters depicting what they believe makes Greater Louisville a compassionate and caring place to live. Some potential ideas might include picking up litter, helping a friend or younger sibling with homework, or making a friendly visit to an elderly neighbor. Another theme could be Louisville’s “Give A Day” week of volunteer service scheduled for April 15-22, 2012.

The entries should be done in marker, crayon or paint and submitted on 11-by-17 white paper, or digitally through a JPEG or PDF file. Entries will be judged on visual appeal, creativity, originality and message. This year’s entry deadline is Friday, February 17, 2012.

Entry forms must be attached to hard or digital copies. For copies of entry forms, visit www.ridetarc.org or e-mail Jon Reiter at jreiter@ridetarc.org, or Jessica Holman at jholman@ridetarc.org. Digital copies of entries with forms attached can also be sent to Jon and Jessica. Paper entries should be sent to TARC, c/o Marketing Department., 1000 W. Broadway, Louisville, Ky. 40203

  1. Hi Branden,

    I just wanted to thank you for publishing this. The Design-A-Bus competition and party really is one of the most fun things we get to do as an organization every year and is a favorite of our Executive Director, Barry Barker. In addition to encouraging kids to participate, I’d also like to mention that we are looking for donations of small, inexpensive items for gift bags that we give out to the winners as well. Examples could include keychains, pens, stickers, – anything an organization might have lying around that could be fun. Anyone wishing to donate 12 items for the winners can contact me at jreiter@ridetarc.org. We’ve already received donations from the Louisville Slugger Museum, Heine Bros. Coffee, and the Louisville Convention and Tourism Bureau – some really cool stuff!

    Thanks again!

    Jon
