Winners of Texas Youth Holiday Stamp Design Contest Announced

Douglas Moss, editor of The Texas Philatelist and First Vice President, Texas Philatelic Association (TPA) writes to announce the winner of the Texas Philatelic Association 20th Youth Holiday Stamp Design Contest.

For twenty years the TPA has encouraged children to design a holiday themed postage stamp. Every child who entered the contest recevies a pack of stamps. Those who win first, second or third place in their age group win additional philatelic items such as albums, catalogs, philatelic books and other stamp supplies.

The overall winner of this year's contest is Alex Gill (age 14) of West Bend, Wisconsin. His artwork (shown above) graced the cover of the November/December 2008 issue of The Texas Philatelist.
