Contest held for artwork on new Butte bus
BUTTE, Mont. -

Want to see your art on the buses rolling through the Mining City?

This January, Butte-Silver Bow will launch a fleet of new brand new buses, and the County Transit Authority is holding an art contest for their design.

Submissions will be taken through Friday, August 30th.

The public will have chance to vote on which design they like best.

Organizer Cassie Weightman said, "we thought why not have a contest that celebrates the art community in Butte and transportation. The contest is open to any age anyone can submit their art, it can be photography, hand drawn art, and with that we're going to choose a winner through a voting process and that are will wrap the bus."

Last year, Butte received to an $840,000 grant from the Federal Transit Authority to replace the city's aging buses.
