High school freshman wins city sticker contest
February 2, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A Chicago high school freshman will soon see his artwork on more than 1 million vehicles in the city.
Herbert Pulgar designed the new city vehicle sticker. His design was chosen from nearly 300 entries.
The theme this year was honoring Chicago's first responders. Pulgar was injured in a fire as a child.
"My mom saved my life, and the firefighters saved my life too, and I'm thankful for that," Pulgar said. "And I can't be no more thankful than I am right now."
The other finalists were also recognized Thursday. They received honorary resolutions and savings bonds.
