High School Winners: “Our bus shelter is a place where hard working parents, little children, and the average workers could go and sit and feel like they are in a different atmosphere. It is a place where people could sit back and enjoy beautiful art that is around the bus stop. From its mosaic ceiling to its solar panels and gardens, it is a more naturalistic environment within the community. People may engage and speak on what a relaxing place it would be. (electric outlets are included). There is place for water fountain and clock.” Bridget A. and Minh N. (additional images of this design here). San Jose, CA.
7th Grade Winners:“This bus shelter is design to create a fun place to wait for the bus. In the morning the cafe would sell hot drinks, when it is cold. After school people could get a snack and go up to the top story using our fun ladder. On the top are tables and a place to talk or do homework. Outside are many tables, so many people can come. On the main story are counter top seats and a T.V. so they can be entertained. There is even a telescope so that people can look for the bus.” Isabelle, Gaby and Rachel at Hillview Middle School, Menlo Park CA.
