According to the office, nearly 400 Chicago high school students from 50 schools entered a contest to design the 2011-2012 vehicle sticker. A panel of judges has narrowed down the entries to the top 10, the office says, and now it's up to the public to vote for their favorite design.
The theme for the sticker is "education is key." The winning design will be used on over one million vehicle stickers.
The student whose design wins will receive a $1,000 savings bond at a special City Hall presentation with Clerk Miguel del Valle. Second and third place contest winners will receive $500 and $250 savings bonds, respectively. The seven remaining finalists will each receive a $100 savings bond.
In order to vote, visit www.ChiCityClerk.com. Voting is open through December 12, 2010.
