Summary:

Budget Manager, Matt Randall, will give a brief overview of the expression of data program and will invite the top three entrants to be recognized.

 

Last year, the City of Olathe’s launched a program called “Expression of Data” that resulted in a downtown sculpture being on display in the lobby of City Hall that represented one of the City’s Key Performance Indicators - The Mobility Index. This year the Expression of Data program has evolved to become an art contest open to any high school student living in Olathe.  The program’s purpose is to encourage creative, innovative student expression of Olathe’s commitment to citizens and service through the City’s use of measurement and data.  This year’s entries were based on a theme of Transportation to reflect the Mobility Index, Transportation Preservation & Renewal Index, and Transportation Satisfaction Index.

 

In total, 28 Olathe students submitted their expression of data artwork representing their artistic expression of transportation in the City of Olathe.
