The 2013 UTSA Fiesta medal is now available for purchase at Roadrunner Express on the Main and Downtown campuses. Each medal costs $3.00. There will be a limited number of medals, so hurry in and purchase yours while supplies last!
This year’s UTSA Fiesta Medal features solid orange ribbon with the UTSA wordmark and the Rowdy head logo on a burst of yellow and orange over a field of sparkly blue. “Fiesta 2013” is tops the design.
According to the Fiesta San Antonio Commission, pin and medal collecting and trading is one of Fiesta San Antonio’s most popular traditions. The medals tradition goes back at least 50 years, but no one is exactly sure how this tradition began. Each year, more than 100 non-profit organizations order and sell the items as fundraisers. Local military organizations, private companies, individuals and other institutions also create the medals as mementos.
