Show off your art skills on the buses!

SHOW OFF YOUR ART SKILLS ON THE BUSES! Here’s a fantastic opportunity for students to have their artwork shown across the Yorkshire Dales each day! The Little White Bus is running a competition for students to design new artwork that can be applied to their new fleet of ten vehicles. The winning designs will go on the back and rear sides of the buses and there will be a different one chosen for each bus. Visit LITTLE WHITE BUS ARTWORK COMPETITION to submit your entry by 23rd July 2021.

Each design needs to be A4 portrait in size and must be inspired by the phrase ‘This is what the Yorkshire Dales means to me.” In addition, each student should write a few words about why they chose their design. Winners will receive £100 in book tokens. The judges will select two winning entries from each age group (4-7 years/8-11 years/12-16 years/16-18 years). The winners will be announced at the start of the autumn term. It is hoped there will be an awards ceremony before the end of the year, where the winners and their family can meet their bus and the judges, but that is clearly dependent on the pandemic guidance at the time.

The judges are:
David Butterworth – CEO of National Park Authority
Councillor Yvonne Peacock
Stacey Moore – award winning artist based in Hawes and Richmond
Tim Larmour – Branch Manager, Newcastle Building Society, Hawes

The Upper Dales Community Partnership runs public and school bus services under the name of The Little White Bus.These services travel over 500,000 miles each year from Richmond and Leyburn in the east to Hawes, Keld and Sedbergh in the west. They carry residents and visitors up and down Swaledale and Wensleydale, as well as taking primary and secondary children to school.
