The city of Santa Clarita invites local middle school and high school students to participate in the Santa Clarita Transit "Go Green" art contest.

Open until March 1, the contest encourages local students to illustrate through traditional art, graphic design or photography how Santa Clarita Transit helps their family and the community.

The contest will be broken down into two age groups: middle school (7th and 8th grade) and high school (9 through 12th grades).

Contestants may choose from three themes for the contest: "Go Green and Save," illustrating how to travel green by using city buses to reduce gas costs and traffic; "Go Green to Fun Places," showing how to travel green on a city bus to a fun place in the city; or "Go Green and Be Safe," where contestants can illustrate a safe way to ride a city bus while travelling green.

A $50 cash prize and $25 toward Santa Clarita Transit fares will be awarded for the first prize winners in each age group for the categories of traditional art, graphic design and photography. A grand prize winner in each age group will pick up a $100 cash prize and $50 toward Santa Clarita Transit fares.

Contest winners will be notified on March 17 and all winning artwork will be displayed at the Grand Finale Art Exhibit at the city's Earth/Arbor Festival on April 17, as well as the city's Transit Maintenance Facility.

All entries must be a minimum of 8"x10" and a maximum of 11"x17". One entry will be accepted per artist. City employees and family members are not eligible to enter.

Contestants must submit entries in person or via mail to the city of Santa Clarita's Arts and Events Office, 23920 Valencia Blvd., Suite 120, Santa Clarita 91355.
