Sierra McLean, 14, a student at City High School, was the grand prize winner of the Tucson Birthday Stamp Design Contest.
Her design pays tribute to Tucson’s 238th birthday.
The top five winners from three age groups were given awards and prizes Friday at a ceremony at the Postal History Foundation, according to a news release from the group.
McLean’s stamp design was of a rider on a bucking horse in front of “A” Mountain with the city view in the background. Her design has been made into custom legal U.S. postage that can be purchased at the foundation, 920 N. First Ave., the release said.
The $1.50 cost per stamp benefits the foundation’s Youth Education Thru Stamps program.
Other winners whose designs will be printed as cachets on envelopes that can also be purchased at the foundation are:
Meagan Owens, who attends Emily Grey Junior High; Andrew Armenta, Walter Douglas Elementary; and Tanvi Narendran, Castlehill Country Day School, according to the foundation.
