15-year-old Grete-Lisette Gulbis wins Eesti Pank's coin design competition

Last year Estonian children were invited to submit their designs for a special 2 euro commemorative coin to mark the 150th anniversary of the Estonian Song Festival. This was a unique competition, the first time a coin was to be designed by a child, and open to anyone under the age of nineteen. Each child was permitted to submit three designs and the best eight were chosen for a public vote that took place in February.

Over 8000 designs were submitted in total from children all across Estonia. The eight finalists ranged in age from seven to seventeen.

Grete-Lisette Gulbis is a 9th grade student at the Tõrva Gymnasium in southern Estonia. Congratulations!
