Mail Matters: Drawing Contest

Calling all artists between the ages of 4-12: sharpen those pencil crayons, moisten those watercolours, or fire up the iPad! We want to see your artistic flare!

Show us in a drawing how mail can help brighten someone’s day and share why mail matters to you.

The winning artwork will be featured on a limited edition run of Canadian postage stamps, to be sold exclusively at Toronto’s First Post Office, and will be featured in an upcoming issue of this newsletter. The winner will also receive a commemorative sheet of 26 stamps for their own use.
