Youth Holiday Stamp Design Contest

Douglas Moss writes to say The Texas Philatelic Association (TPA) and the Dallas-Park Cities Philatelic Society (DPCPS)have begun their 20th Annual Youth Holiday Stamp Design Contest.

The contest encourages youths from ages four to eighteen to design a postage stamp to celebrate the winter holidays. The artwork can relate to any winter holiday the participant wishes to recognize. The artwork should include a denomination and country name.

Entries are required to be postmarked October 1, 2008.

The winner of the contest will have their artwork featured on the cover of the November/December 2008 issue of The Texas Philatelist, the official journal of the TPA. First, second and third place winners by age group will be recognized in a feature article in the journal.

All children who enter the contest will receive a packet of stamps. The three best entries by age group will also be recognized. Doug says they will receive additional philatelic prizes beyond the packet of stamps.
