The planetarium, located next to Washington-Lee High School in the Virginia Square area, is prominently featured on the 2017-2018 Arlington County vehicle decal contest winner, “Arlington Sees Stars.”

The winning submission from Wakefield High School sophomore Amy Kohan was announced during a County Board meeting Tuesday afternoon.

“I chose this because it was one of the things I looked forward to [visiting] in elementary school every year,” Kohan said during the award ceremony. “It’s one of my favorite things about Arlington.”

For her hard work, Kohan will receive a cash prize of $750 from the Arlington Community Federal Credit Union. Finalists Schuyler Workmaster, Sydney Machion and Marjorie Henriquez will each receive $500 for their submissions.

More than 3,200 votes were cast in this year’s competition, representing a 78 percent increase in votes compared with last year, said Arlington County Treasurer Carla de la Pava.
