Youth Education

Marana Leap Eagle for web           pg kids












Welcome back to school! Its time to request a guest speaker and/or order lessons! Our resources provide a great supplement to your classroom learning requirements. The visual history recorded by stamps from around the world enriches and supports the Common Core requirements. Postage stamps can be integrated into all disciplines: history, art, language arts, math, geography, and others. Each student can hold, touch, investigate, learn, and keep every stamp we supply. Please check our  List of Lessons  to learn ways you can integrate stamps into your learning environment. Students love learning with stamps!


2014 Winner is announced!

  2014 stamp

The 7th Annual Tucson Birthday Stamp has been printed as custom legal US postage. Proceeds from the sale of the stamps will benefit the YES (Youth Education thru Stamps) program at the Postal History Foundation.

The winning design was created by Jillian Stachowski, a seven year old student at Gale Elementary in Tucson. Her clever and creative design pictures a horned lizard blowing out candles, represented by saguaros. In the background are beautiful purple mountains that surround Tucson.

Six other entries were selected for cachet designs on envelopes.The top fifteen winning entries can be viewed at the Postal History Foundation for several months. We are open 8am to 3pm Mondays thru Fridays.

To order the stamps and cachets you may call us, drop by, or click on the order form below.   520-623-6652 x 102
