Clerk Miguel del Valle Announces 2009-2010 Vehicle Sticker Art Contest Theme for decal will be “Dog Friendly Chicago”

 „City Clerk del Valle’s dog registration program gives our office the critical support we need to meet the city’s goal of reuniting lost pets to their owners and finding every adoptable animal a home,” said Animal Care and Control Acting Executive Director Sandra Alfred.

The goal of the art contest is to create city-wide awareness on a selected topic and have high school students from all over the city participate with their government in an educational and creative way. A panel of independent professionals, including artists, civic leaders and local media celebrities will review all entries and vote for the top ten finalists. The artwork of the ten finalists will be voted on by the public.

The student winner will receive a $1,000 savings bond from City Clerk del Valle and the artwork will appear on approximately 1.3 million automobile Chicago city stickers beginning in June 2009. Second and third place contestants will receive $500 and $250 savings bonds respectively. The seven remaining finalists will each receive $100 savings bonds.
