Tucson birthday stamp design contest

Calling all youth artists! Our annual Tucson birthday stamp design contest lets kids explore their artistic side while celebrating the essence of Tucson.

The contest is open to Tucson-area children ages 5-17. Each of three age brackets has five winners. Winning designs will be featured on the Postal History Foundation web site and by local media. All 1st – 5th place winners of each age category will be given several prizes along with ribbons and certificates.  One grand winning design will be used to print stamps that are legal for postage! Some of the designs will be chosen as cachets to be printed on envelopes to commemorate Tucson’s birthday. The custom stamps and cachets will be available for sale the day of the party and afterwards as a fundraiser for the YES program.

The deadline is passed for the 2018 contest. Check back after August 28 to see the winning designs!
