The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada is inviting Clark County School District students to celebrate Earth Day by taking part in the agency’s Earth Day Art Contest.

Sixth through 12th grade students are invited to participate in the contest to promote the “quicker, cleaner, greener” initiative with images of transit, carpooling, bicycling and walking.

The top two winners will have their artwork featured on an RTC transit vehicle for up to a year. The agency will judge the artwork.
