Ema Bulić, a 6th grade student from the town of Poreč, has won a contest which has seen her design turned into a new Croatian postage stamp.
This year, for the 15th time, Croatian Post, in cooperation with the Education Agency, held a contest in primary schools throughout Croatia to select an artistic design for the children’s postage stamp of the Republic of Croatia.
The theme of the contest was friendship and Ema was presented with her price at the post office on Jurišićeva Street in downtown Zagreb on Friday.
Ema was joined by her classmates from the “Poreč” primary school as she was presented with her prize – computer and a printer – by Edita Gregurić Cvenić, head of the Philately Department at the Corporate Marketing Office of the Croatian Post.
“I feel great and I am very happy that I won this award because I did not expect that my work would be the best. The team from the class and I are very excited to see the new post office, but also Zagreb”, said Ema.
161 primary schools participated in the competition with a total of 972 student works, and the expert committee selected the 30 most successful.
Croatian Post has been implementing this project in cooperation with the Education Agency since 2007, and the winners of the competition have the opportunity to be the authors of a unique product – a postage stamp – and their name on a letter or parcel can travel the world.
“We are really proud to be successfully implementing this project with the Education Agency for the fifteenth year in a row. Every year, a large number of schools and students respond to the competition, which I think is very important, because this is how our youngest generations get to know the value and meaning of postage stamps, but also of Croatian Post,” said Edita Gregurić Cvenić during the promotion.
