Youth poster contest gets under way

The 2009 Boarman National USPS Youth Poster Contest runs from fall 2008 to fall 2009 and is open to all children ages 6 to 14. Entries will be divided into three age groups: 6–8, 9–11 and 12–14. The theme of this year’s contest is “Boating is Fun!”

The national winners in each age group will receive $150, and the first and second runners-up in each group will receive $100 and $75 respectively.

The deadline for squadron-level entries is set by the district and must occur before district judging at a spring conference or summer rendezvous. After district judging, first-place winning entries must arrive no later than noon, 10 Sept. 2009, for national judging at the USPS Governing Board Meeting in Kansas City, Mo. Entries should be sent to the attention of Philip Osborne or Claudette C. Gallop.
