A Miami-Dade County bus that had been wrapped with poems written by students from Orchard Villa Elementary and Poinciana Park Elementary schools was unveiled yesterday at Poinciana Park Elementary School. The County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) wrapped the new bus, which will begin running on a route in Liberty City.
The "O, Miami" Poetry festival was founded in 2011 with a mission of having every single person in Miami-Dade County encounter a poem during the month of April. The schoolchildren had the opportunity to read their poems during the presentation.
