Souvenirs for Stamp Designers
The Cayman Islands Postal Service 2015 yesterday (Thursday 21 January 2016) presented mementoes to the five students whose stamp designs were selected for its Christmas 2015 stamp issue.
Each young person received a framed stamp set with a first-day cover, a sheet of their stamps and a large commemorative poster from Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow.
Chosen from more than 50 entries, winners included: Zara Garofalo, Arianna Anglin, Samruddhi Tagalpallewar and Cerys Martin, all of Ignatius Catholic School, and Clementine Bonnie Lumsden of Cayman Prep School.
The Cayman Islands Postal Service released the special stamp issue on December 2nd, in a series themed: “What does Christmas in the Cayman Islands mean to you?” It was the first time that the organisation had invited local students to submit their designs.
