Burnsville Students Produce Art Panels for MVTA Buses

Through a strategic partnership between the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority (MVTA), Burnsville, MN, and area schools, students enrolled in Burnsville High School’s business elective, Interactive Design, recently produced interior panels for display in local and express buses. Themes include school spirit, public transit, and, in cooperation with the city of Burnsville, “Beyond the Yellow Ribbon,” a program to provide support to military families on short notice.

MVTA reviewed the students’ “school spirit” and “transit” artwork and chose the winning entries: school spirit, senior Bakar Elmi, and transit, senior Nina Peck. The “Beyond the Yellow Ribbon” winning entry—by sophomore Jonathan Vang—was selected by Burnsville Councilmember William (Bill) Coughlin and former assistant City Administrator Tom Hansen.

The agency had the panels printed and dry mounted for display on the interior of MVTA buses. Students also received copies of their final product.

Bakar Elmi displays his winning artwork in the school spirit category.
