Collin Chon Wins “Best of Show” at 2021 DART Student Art Contest

Collin Chon, a 5th grade student at Greenhill School in Addison, is this year’s Best of Show winner in the Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART) annual Student Art Contest.

Collin’s artwork, based on this year’s theme of, “Everyday Heroes Ride DART,” was selected from 688 entries from students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Heroes come in many forms and this year’s art contest gave young artists the chance to salute the hometown heroes that have kept our community going during the pandemic – everyday people that have made a positive impact in the lives of others.
