Students encouraged to get creative for Oncor Mayor’s Race poster contest


Before thousands of feet hit the street for the Oncor Mayor’s Race 5K on Saturday, Dec. 9, students are encouraged to use their creative talents to design posters that show their school spirit and pride.

Entries are due on or before Friday, Nov. 10, and will be judged in three grade-level categories: elementary, middle and high school. Photos of entries may be uploaded via an online Poster Submission Form accessible to Dallas ISD employees.

Posters will receive points by meeting certain criteria: Five points each for including campus name, school mascot, principal’s name, executive director’s name; 10 points each for using relevant graphics, graphics originality, being correct dimensions (at least 22 inches by 28 inches) and featuring proper spelling and grammar; 15 points for overall attractiveness; and 25 points for creativity.

The Oncor Mayor’s Race 5K is the day before the BMW Dallas Marathon.
