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 and Topical List as well as other tabs to the right on this screen to learn ways you can integrate stamps into your learning environment. Students love learning with stamps!
Today the winners of the 7th Annual Tucson Birthday Stamp Design Contest were revealed! All of the winners were given certificates, ribbons, t-shirts, Bookman's gift certificates and other prizes at the ceremony. The Grand Winning design has been printed as custom legal US postage. Proceeds from the sale of the stamps will benefit the YES , Youth Education thru Stamps, proram at the Postal History Foundation. To order the stamps you may call us, drop by, or click on the order form and mail it in to YES - 910 North First Avenue Tucson, Arizona 85719 520-623-6652
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 toad blowing out candles, represented by saguaros. In the background are beautiful purple mountains that surround Tucson.
Six other designs were selected for cachet designs on envelopes. Click on the button below to view the winning stamp and cachets.
