Youth stamp design contest features lighthouses

Reporter Abby Slutsky of the Fort Wayne, Indiana, Journal Gazette reports lighthouses were the theme of a stamp design contest which was sponsored by the Anthony Wayne Stamp Society and the Fort Wayne Post Office.

More than 400 entries were submitted.

Six winners were chosen and each received a framed lighthouse stamp art, a certificate and the opportunity to have their stamp design submitted to the U.S. Postal Service’s Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee for consideration.

Katie Jeffrey, 16, was the first place winner in the senior division with her painting of a lighthouse at sunset which is shown above.
