Coachella Valley students are being invited to submit clean energy-themed artwork that could be enlarged and wrapped around local buses.

SunLine Transit Agency kicked off its 5th Annual Student Art Contest on Tuesday.

“As a leader in alternative fuel solutions, SunLine’s buses are environmentally friendly and don’t pollute the air,” a post on the agency’s Facebook page reads. “Participating students should create a message about how public transportation improves the environment.”

The contest comprises three categories for elementary, middle and high school students.

Artwork must be submitted by 5 p.m. on June 3.

A new category was created this year for high school students, who can compose art using a variety of mediums including digital media, paint, markers, photographs, or works utilizing graphic design techniques.

Elementary and middle school students must create work using crayons, paint, colored pencils, or other similar tools, but they are not allowed to submit digital media.

Winners will have their artwork wrapped around a hydrogen electric fuel cell bus, the agency said, and see their art on SunLine’s website and on the agency’s marketing materials.

The second and third place winners will have their artwork displayed at a local bus stop.
