In recognition of the school year beginning, Washington State Ferries is holding its first-ever drawing contest. The topic is what winter on the water means to me.

Students from kindergarten through fifth grade can participate. Drawings will be accepted via email or snail mail through Oct. 14. The winning drawing will be featured on the cover of 400,000 winter 2017 sailing schedules.

“Our ferry system is an iconic part of our state, and carries thousands of students to and from school each day and on various school trips,” said WSF director Lynne Griffith. “We love being the state’s only green and white school bus, and want to ask young Washingtonians to submit drawings celebrating their ferry system.”

Besides the winner, five finalists will be selected and featured on the WSF website, on Twitter and in the WSF Weekly Update newsletter.
