Covid Heroes stamp design competition

Over the next couple of weeks years 7, 8 & 9 will be taking part in a national competition being run by Royal Mail, and designing stamps to honour the heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The competition is open to children aged 4-14 years and eight of the best designs will be chosen to be part of a set of postage stamps that will be used on thousands of letters and packages.

The eight winners will receive a £1000 shopping voucher and their schools will also receive £1000 in cash. Further prizes are also available, including £500 vouchers for regional winners and £100 vouchers for regional runners-up. In addition, there will be £5 vouchers for two of the best designs at CNS.
