Laketran 2023 Art Contest Winners Announced

Laketran is pleased to announce the winners of our 3rd annual Design a Bus Wrap Art Contest.  Area students were encouraged to design a bus wrap showcasing the theme “Building a Greener Lake County” and could include iconic images of Lake County and/or promote public transportation.

Kaitlin Barninger, a senior at Mentor High School, won first prize for her design entry themed, “Live Green, Live in Lake County.”  As the top winner, Barninger’s design will be displayed on one of Laketran’s Dial-a-Ride buses for one year.
