2nd Annual F.C. Vehicle Decal Design Contest Opens

The Office of the Treasurer of the City of Falls Church announced the second annual Vehicle Decal Design Competition for high school students in the City on Monday, Dec. 5. The contest offers a cash prize for the student who wins the competition.

The first-place design will have a City of Falls Church theme and will be displayed on the windshields of more than 13,000 vehicles registered in the City of Falls Church. It will also become part of an exhibit in City Hall.

“Last year was our first year for the design competition and it was very successful,” said city treasurer Jody Acosta. “We had 12 wonderfully varied student artist submissions. I can’t wait to see what great artistic designs are submitted this year, showing pride for The Little City. This is a great way for students to learn about local government, and an excellent ‘vehicle’ for displaying their art.”

This contest is open to high schools students who either reside in or go to school in the City of Falls Church. Only one entry per student is allowed. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top four entries: first place $750, second place $500, third place $250 and fourth place $150.

All submissions must be received by 5:00 p.m. on January 5 at the City’s Treasurer’s office at 300 Park Avenue, Suite 103 East or [email protected]. A citizen panel will choose the top four finalists. Online voting on those finalists will open the week of January 9 and will close on February 9.
