School transportation provider First Student has named three more winning entries, all from elementary school students in Missouri, in its artwork contest.
The annual contest celebrates the experience of riding the school bus through artwork created by students in school districts across North America, company officials said.
First Student selected the latest winning entries from the Rockwood School District near St. Louis. Megan Baker, a fourth grade student at Blevins Elementary School; Ella Burstein, a third grade student at Wild Horse Elementary School; and Ben Winkler, a third grade student at Fairway Elementary School, captured how “Happiness starts with yellow.”
The first winning contest entry came from St. Louis Public Schools. Lejla Husetovic of Buder Elementary created artwork that shows a First Student bus outside of her school with her classmates.
First Student awarded each elementary school $1,000 to put toward classroom supplies. The company is selecting a total of 12 winning artwork entries this year from students in participating school districts that First Student serves.
Contest submissions are also being shared on First Student's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts using the hashtag #MasterpieceMonday.
