Snow-Covered W&OD Bridge Selected for New Car Decal

The design for Arlington’s 2010-2011 vehicle decal has been chosen.

Appropriately, considering this winter’s historic snowfall, the design features a snow-covered bridge over the W&OD trail.

The winner was chosen from a pool of 19 designs submitted by local high school students. It will soon be featured on the 155,000 vehicles garaged in Arlington.

The photo for this year’s design was submitted by Providence Smith of Wakefield High School. She said the photo “represents the recreational opportunities [in] Arlington.”

Smith and the three other design finalists, Cynthia Carson and Patricia Murray of Washington-Lee High and Sam Jones of the Potomac School, will each receive a $500 savings bond from Wachovia Bank.
