April 5, 2024

Metro is once again inviting Omaha-area student artists to share their artwork for a chance to see it rolling across town on a 35-foot bus.

Omaha-area middle school and high school students can submit original designs for a bus wrap that celebrates Omaha while highlighting the benefits public transit brings to the community. Students can interpret that any way they want that can be incorporated into art.

Two winners will be chosen: one from middle school, one from high school. The winning pieces will be transformed into a full bus wrap on a 35-foot bus. They’ll roll around town for up to a year.

  • Contest Opens: April 5, 2024
  • Winning Pieces Revealed: By end of August 2024
