Calling all L.A. County high school students!
Snapchat stickers are a fun way to add expression to snaps and chats. Every day, Snapchatters can choose from hundreds of colorful stickers designed by Team Snapchat to express their excitement, appreciation, hunger, sleepiness or anything else with a drawing or cartoon.
Together with Snap Inc., we're unleashing the creativity of L.A. students. The challenge: encourage high school students to design a sticker pack themed to 'High School: A Day in the Life.' The student designers of the top 20 sticker packs will have the opportunity to visit Snap Inc. headquarters in Venice for a meet & greet and workshop hosted by the Snapchat design team! Learn more.
