Melissa Stepovich, co-chair of the Alaska Statehood Celebration Commission, holds a replica of the seal of the state of Alaska during a ceremony on the cruise ship Sapphire Princess. The seal will be made into 5,000 medallions in an effort sponsored by the Juneau Statehood Celebration Committee and funded by the Alaska Statehood Celebration Commission. The medallions will be sold to help fund a statehood celebration.
