The wheels on the bus go round and round...

TARC and the Kentucky Science Center are accepting submissions for the annual Design-a-Bus contest, where local school-aged kids can get rolling on artwork for the exterior of a bus.

The theme this year is, “The Periodic Elements of Louisville.” Students should think of an important place in their community where they formed a lasting memory and illustrate it.

Here’s how it works:

  • Open to all elementary, middle, and high school students in Jefferson, Oldham, and Bullitt counties in Kentucky + Floyd and Clark counties in Indiana
  • Use marker, crayon, paint, or create digitally on a square sheet of white paper
  • Enter online by Friday, Feb. 9

Winning artwork will be featured on a bus in the 2024 Pegasus Parade, and the winning student + family will ride along. The bus will then be used on TARC routes, all through the town.
