PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

A NASA patch used in space is now in the hands of its Prattville designer.

Katherine Steele, a sixth-grader at Prattville Intermediate school, won a national contest in May to design a mission patch for NASA.

The patch was sewn on to astronauts suits to go to space during a mission back in June.

On Monday, a representative from NASA visited Prattville to present Steele with the completed patch.
