2017-18 Green Arlington County Decal
The green Arlington County decal should be placed on your vehicle’s windshield no later than November 15, 2017.
2017-2018 Decal Design Winner!
Congratulations to Amy Kohan, a 10th grader from Wakefield High School, on her winning design entitled, "Arlington Sees Stars."
Kohan’s design, which features a photograph of the David M. Brown Planetarium, will appear on more than 160,000 vehicles in Arlington County. In her Decal Competition application, Kohan noted that, “As the only freestanding school planetarium open to the public in the metro area, it has over 20,000 students visiting every year.” Captain David M. Brown, a 1974 graduate of Yorktown High School, died on the Columbia space shuttle mission in 2003. Kohan wrote, “The Planetarium has been helping to invest curiosity in the minds of kids and adults of all ages.”
Last October, the Arlington County Treasurer’s Office invited high school students who reside or attend school in Arlington to submit a design for the 13th Annual Vehicle Decal Design Competition. In December, a Citizens' Panel convened to narrow the record-breaking 235 submissions to just four finalists. The other finalists this year were:
Sydney Machion, a 9th grader from Wakefield High School.
Marjorie Henriquez, an 11th grader from Wakefield High School.
Schuyler Workmaster, a 10th grader from Bishop D. J. O'Connell High School.
