A koi wrap on a bus was designed by a middle school student who was inspired by koi at the local zoo; now this art is on show for whole community to see. Congratulations to these young artists.
The contest was part of Metro’s 50th anniversary celebration and reflected the transportation agency’s mission of connecting people, places and opportunities, said Lauren Cencic, Metro Omaha CEO. Area students submitted entries over the summer, and a committee of Metro staff and community members selected a high school winner and middle school winner, according to a press release.
Urbanski, a senior at Marian High School, was the winning high school student. Cencic said the committee thought Urbanski’s colorful design, which incorporated the message “Spread Love Omaha,” represented the people of Omaha and its sense of community. (From the Omaha World Herald, Nov 18, 2022)
