Kids Have Been Busy Drawing Their Pandemic Heroes On A Postage Stamp

Keep an eye out for your post in the coming weeks, because it might come with a rather special stamp attached. Schoolchildren have been busy designing new Royal Mail stamps to recognise heroes of the pandemic, as part of a record-breaking stamp competition.

More than 600,000 designs were submitted from almost 7,500 schools, with 120 regional finalists chosen. The previous highest number of entries received for a stamp design competition was 239,374 for Royal Mail’s Christmas Stamp Design Competition in 2013.

Children aged four to 14 were asked to think about who their heroes were and to design a stamp in their honour.

The designs received celebrate heroes including NHS workers, parents, carers, refuse collectors, cleaning staff, teachers, supermarket workers, public transport staff, delivery drivers and postmen and postwomen.
