Vote To Choose Next Year's Chicago City Sticker Design

The Parking Ticket Geek

The Geek is an idiot, who gets a lot of parking tickets, and knows how to fight back.


No one enjoys prying their hard earned 75 bucks from their wallet to pay for their annual Chicago city vehicle sticker.

But one of the truly fun and enjoyable events that takes place every year is the Chicago City Clerk's annual city sticker design contest.

This year 312 Chicago high school students submitted designs. The field has been narrowed to just 10.

"We received more than 300 entries from 39 high schools all across Chicago for this year's vehicle sticker art design contest," said Clerk del Valle via press release. "Our panel of volunteer judges critiqued all entries to determine the top 10 designs. We now ask the public to review the student's artwork on our website and choose the winner."

The theme for this year's design contest is "Burnham's Chicago," which sought designs that highlight seminal Chicago architect and urban planner, Daniel Burnham's many contributions to this city.

This year's top ten art contest finalists are: Lookman Muhammed, Lawrence Hall Youth Services; Cooper Zajac, Lincoln Park High School; Jose Estrada, Steinmetz Academic Centre; Tomas Tapia, Jr., Marine Math & Science Academy; Gioia Marzullo, Guerin College Prep; Fationa Celepija, Mather High School; Latasha Wilson, Corliss High School; Diana Solorzano, Mather High School; Michael Tonner, St. Ignatius College Prep; and Kevin Zaragoza, Prosser Career Academy.

The student with the winning design receives a $1,000 savings bond from Clerk del Valle and the artwork will appear on the 2010 - 2011 vehicle sticker beginning in June 2010. Second and third place contests receive $500 and $250 savings bonds, respectively. The seven remaining finalists each receive a $100 savings bond.

You can vote for your favorite sticker design online at from Dec. 6 through Dec. 13. Voting also is open Monday, Dec. 7 through Friday, Dec. 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 107 of City Hall at 121 N. LaSalle.

In the great spirit of Chicago democracy, we say "vote early, vote often!"

Just kidding.
