Boys & Girls Club Art Contest Blog

The Ventura County Transportation Commission partnered with the seven Boys and Girls Clubs in Ventura County for an art contest over the summer. The goal of the art contest was to engage young people in thinking about the role of transportation in their lives and communities. Using the theme, “Oh, the places you’ll go,” we asked kids to create an original drawing or painting showing a place in their community that they’d like to visit and how they plan to get there.

The winning artwork is now proudly displayed on five VCTC Intercity buses.

Special thank you to the Boys and Girls Clubs for participating in the contest and congrats to all the winners!
