Deadline extended for Canada Post stamp design contest

January 11, 2013

OTTAWA, Jan. 11, 2013 /CNW/ – The deadline to participate in the Canada
Post design competition for the 2013 Community Foundation stamp has
been extended. Children 15 years old and under are invited to submit
their original artwork at canadapost.ca/stampcompetition. Submissions of stamp designs will be accepted online until midnight on
February 1, 2013 (EST).

The competition invites young artists to submit designs that capture the
issues faced by children and youth in Canada, and that reflect the
diversity of Canadian youth, their creativity and their hopes for the
future. Ultimately, designs should inspire Canadians to purchase a
Community Foundation stamp and make a donation to support children’s
charities across Canada.

Parents, teachers and caregivers who want to teach an important lesson
on community spirit, nurture a child’s creativity and have them
potentially win a $2,000 Registered Education Savings Plan, should
visit canadapost.ca/stampcompetition for full rules and regulations.

The Canada Post Community Foundation’s vision is to help ensure every
child in Canada is happy, healthy and part of a community that supports
and cares for them. Its mission is to have a positive effect in the
lives of children in the communities Canada Post serves by supporting
registered charities, school programs or local initiatives that benefit
children. To learn more about the Foundation, visit canadapost.ca/community.
