Limes Farm Infant School is delighted to be taking part in Royal Mail’s Heroes Stamp Design Competition, honouring the heroes of the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of key workers have kept the country going and there have been many people who volunteered to help people in their communities who needed help or support. Royal Mail wants to honour these amazing people by producing a set of 8 stamps.
8 pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK will become the designers of this stamp set, and one could be you! In addition to the eight winning stamps, the winners will receive up to £1000 in high street vouchers and the schools will each receive up to £1000 in cash. Plus, 120 great prizes are on offer for the regional winners and runners up, across both age categories.
These are the age categories –
Age Group A : 4-11 years (Primary)
Age Group B : 12-14 years (Secondary)
Use the stamp template you brought home and draw your design. Write your name and age on the form and return it back to your teacher by Tuesday 25th May. We will send all entries together to Royal Mail.
As with all the Royal Mail’s Special Stamps, before the designs are sent to print, each of them will need to be approved by Her Majesty The Queen.
