City Clerk Susana Mendoza sat down with NBC 5 to talk about her plans to hopefully secure corporate sponsorship for the back of next year’s city stickers.
Chicago firefighters and policemen who will grace the front of next year’s Chicago city sticker, when the winner of the 2012-2013 City Sticker Design Contest is announced.
The competition, sponsored by the City Clerk’s office every year, is now accepting design submissions from Chicago high school students, which if selected will make it onto the windshield of 1.3 million motor vehicles registered in the city. This year’s theme is “Chicago’s Heroes”, to honor this city’s first responders.
“I encourage all Chicago high school students to create a sticker that would honor our brave men and women who protect our communities every day,” said Clerk Mendoza. “Our annual vehicle sticker contest is a great way to participate in our city’s government and showcase the immense artistic talent our students have. Last year’s contest drew nearly 400 entries from 50 schools and I hope to increase those numbers this year!”
Not just on TV, in publications or on billboards, but on more uncommon objects or places, like the side of trains, on sidewalks, the facades of vacant buildings or even in public restrooms.
In the spirit of this creeping commercialism, advertising sponsorship on your Chicago city sticker is one step closer to reality for next year.
The City Clerk’s office has issued a Request for Information (RFI) through the city’s Department of Procurement, the first step in the process of securing a sponsor for the windshield decal.
