A big congratulations to 14-year-old Serena Hsu. She is the grand prize winner of the 11th Annual Tucson Birthday Stamp Design Contest.

Hsu is a 9th grader at Catalina Foothills High School.

Her stamp features a beautiful front door with cacti and chilies drawn with colored pencils. The inspiration for her stamp design came from Tucson's original neighborhood Barrio Viejo. "I like the vibrant colors they have," Hsu said.

The contest is an event held every year by the Postal History Museum to celebrate Tucson's Birthday. This year, Tucson is celebrating 243 years.
