These have been now shortlisted to just 140 regional finalists. In September, VIP Judges will select two of these designs to appear on one of the 1st or one of the 2nd Class stamps this Christmas.

5,354 primary schools signed up to the Christmas Stamp Design Competition. All participating schools were sent a resource pack which contained entry forms, plus a series of five fun lesson plans, including a great stamp game, all developed by Family & Education.

All resources were on the subject of stamps, and covered the national curriculum requirements for each country. The packs allowed participating schools to run a week of engaging ‘stamp’ activity before or after the competition.

Schools indicated that over 800,000 children took part in the activity during June and July, equating to over 14% of UK primary school children.
