Youth Holiday Cover Contest

Doug Moss of the The Texas Philatelic Association (TPA) reminds everyone about the 21st annual Youth Holiday Cover Contest.

Children grades K through 12 are encouraged to enter the contest by designing a winter-themed holiday postage stamp. The stamp should have a denomination and a country name.

All contestants will receive a stamp album and stamps for entering the contest. The very best entry will have their stamp design featured on the cover of the November-December issue of the Texas Philatelist.

And this year we have prizes, prizes and more prizes! The top 3 entries for each age group will receive albums, games and philatelic literature. Thanks to a generous grant by the British North American Philatelic Society (BNAPS), the prizes will be bigger and better than ever!

The contest ends October 1, 2009, so please act soon to get your stamp design to us before the deadline. The contest is also sponsored by the Dallas-Park Cities Philatelic Society.

Shown above is last year's winning entry submitted by Alex Gill of Wisconsin.

Happy Holidays everyone!
