New Brunswick Stamp Stories 2016

Welcome to New Brunswick's Stamp Stories Competition!

Stamp Stories is a provincial design contest that students in grades 4 to 9 can enter. Every student has been tasked with designing a stamp that they feel best portrays New Brunswick's past. On this site we will be showcasing some of these submissions, from all across the province. 

A stamp design can be anything that students want it to be -- as long as it has a New Brunswick History or heritage theme. it might be a local history building or landmark, an ancestor, landscape, animal, a favourite New Brunswick hero, or an important historical event-- anything that means something special to the individual.

Please take some time to view the student's designs-- and then vote for your favourite. Voting closes on May 29; and the top 7 entries will later be featured on the Heritage Branch web site in June.

These are the second round of entries to Stamp Stories. Please cast your vote using the poll on the right...

The Path

This is a picture of the Fundy Trail that I found meant more if you look. The path represents the road we choose. The bumps in the road depict life’s curve-balls, and the light at the end of the tunnel depicts our future as a province.



My papa logs for Irving. People have been logging for many years. This is a picture of my papa’s Western Star truck.

New Brunswick's Icons

I believe that the lobster traps and lobster represent our long history of fisheries. The blockhouse represents the history of our great province and how we became a place to call home. The chickadee shows the environment and how it’s balanced between humans and animals. The lighthouse demonstrates our shipbuilding heritage and us settling down. All together these are balanced in our province of New Brunswick.

   Canadian Goose of New Brunswick

I picked a Canadian Goose because a goose is a sacred bird to Canada. The Canadian Goose lays proudly against the New Brunswick shoreline of St. Martins. This goose is proud to be home to his family and many mariners surrounding him. That is why I picked a goose.
