Cool Careers

Doctors, tattoo artists, and movie stars were among the winning stamp designs submitted by students from 12 elementary schools in Canada.

The Compass website reports that more than 592 entries were received in the 12th annual Postage Stamp Design Contest, which was held to celebrate Canada's Heritage Week, February 19-25.

According to the site, "This year's theme, Cool Careers, promoted a lot of thought and class discussion among the students about their plans for the future."

Sponsors of the contest handed out certificates to all who entered. Medals and prizes were given to the winners during visits to all of the 12 participating schools.

Entries were displayed at the Avalon Region Heritage Fair and at the St. John's Philatelic Society Exhibit in St. John's, Newfoundland.
