These 2007 pro-juventute stamp designs were selected from a contest that began last January at three workshops. More than 100 school children guided by Ted Scapa took part. The design theme selected for the stamp contest was "Holiday pass/Holiday Fun". After all the children designs were entered. The job to select the winners was done by two representatives of the Swiss Post, two from pro juventute, and Ted Scapa. The three lucky winners were Christine Fischer for her "Camping" design, Morena Rufatti for her "Sunshine" design and Jonathan Balest for his "Mountains" design. Each of the winners names are printed on the bottom of the stamp. To learn more about this contest goto website www.pro-juventute.ch
