The usual advice to virgins (of any age) is to first experience the event before jumping in with large projects. The playa is unforgiving for those not prepared and nothing substitutes for experience. Plus waiting a year to undertake a large project allows you to full immerse yourself the first year without the hassle of large art.
Where will you get the supplies and who pays for this? Do you have any metalworking experience and/or tools? Where do you envision this piece, in camp or out on the deep playa? Have you read any of the placement and safety guidelines yet? How will you secure it against the wind? If it is placed other than in your camp, how will you light it at night? How will you transport this sculpture? What size is it?
Fire effects on art pieces have very specific safety guidelines, so you must read those also.
I'm not trying to discourage you, but you must deal with these types of nuts and bolt questions anyway, nay as well get a head start on how to bring your vision to fruition.

bring your very cool project in 2011. This year, concentrate on kicking ass in high school. Graduating is far more important than Burning Man ever will be.
