Local schools partner with Blue Water Transit for art contest

One local student will have his or her artwork on display as a Blue Water Area Transit bus wrap by this time next year. The “Freedom Riders” contest was announced in conjunction with yesterday’s observance of Martin Luther King Junior Day. Lee-Perry Belleau with the transit authority says the art contest will seek submissions from fifth graders in the Port Huron and Marysville school districts. The winning design will be placed on a Blue Water Area Transit bus for next year’s Martin Luther King Junior Day. He says there will also be some special events in conjunction with the “Freedom Riders” contest leading up to MLK day next year. Finalists in the contest will be announced in March.
