Kids In Space

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.
Morgan Hill, Sarah Lipsey, Ashley  Young and Zachary Canter 
probably haven't quite come back down to Earth yet. Next 
Thursday, the space stamps they designed for the U.S. will 
be issued, and the four will be on hand in Southern 
California for the ceremony.

They were all either 9 or 11 when they won the Postal Service 
art competition two years ago. Morgan's stamp shows a family 
rocketship approaching the planet Jupiter.

"It just pretty much means that nobody knows much about 
Jupiter and hopefully that children can go into space and 
maybe even help find out some stuff about Jupiter."

Sarah Lipsey's stamp also has a message...

"In the background it has a world shaped like a heart and 
it's got five children from all over the world holding hands 
and it has stars and some of them have five points and some 
have six points and they represent the different religions all 
over the world." RUNS :12

Zachary's stamp shows kids on space skateboards...Ashley's 
stamp, a golden retriever on the moon, wearing a space helmet.

And that's stamp collecting this week.
