Any high school kids think they can draw a ferry scene?

First it was 10-year-old Ellie Heldridge of Seattle who won the winter sailing schedule drawing contest for grade school kids.

Then 13-year-old Alexander Sowers, also of Seattle, won the spring schedule contest for middle schoolers.

Now the high school kids (grades 9-12) are on the clock for the summer schedule drawing. The theme is “Summer Sightings on the Ferry.” Artwork will be accepted until April 10.

The winning drawing will be featured on the cover of more 985,000 summer schedules, distributed aboard  22 ferries, 10 terminals and throughout ferry communities. The winner and five finalists will also be featured on the WSF website, WSF Twitter and in the WSF Weekly Update newsletter.

This will be the first contest to allow computer graphic design in addition to those produced by hand.

Artwork will be accepted online via Survey Monkey or mail through April 10. A complete list of submission requirements can be found on the WSDOT blog.

West Sound is the ferry capital of the world. Quit letting those Seattle kids win.
