    Lookman Muhammed's winning design commemorating "Burnham's Chicago."

    As Daniel Burnham once wrote, make no small ... city stickers.

    Lookman Muhammad, a 16-year-old junior at Lawrence Hall’s Therapeutic Day School, took those sage words to heart. Muhammad's the winner of Chicago’s 2010 vehicle sticker design contest, the Sun Times reports.

    “It’s gonna feel weird, just to look at random cars that are not mine or my family’s,” and see the sticker, Muhammed told the Sun Times.

    The design celebrates Chicago’s pioneering architect and planner Daniel Burnham. This year’s theme was “Burnham’s Chicago,” and the contest sponsored by City Clerk Miguel del Valle saw the participation of more than 300 students in 39 different schools.

    Last year's sticker contest was won by a "Dog Friendly Chicago" sticker and was displayed on approxiamtely 1.3 million cars around the city.
