Tourism Heritage and Culture

We are pleased to present the top 8 entries for the New Brunswick 2014 Stamp Stories competition.

Stamp Stories is a heritage stamp design contest for students. The design can represent anything students so wish, as long as it has a New Brunswick history or heritage theme. It might be a local historic building or landmark, one of their ancestors, a landscape, an animal, their favourite New Brunswick hero, an important historical event — anything that means something special to the individual.

Here are our top 8 designs for 2014:



1. Janie T. - École Soleil Levant - Richibucto - FSD-Sud

When I Think of New Brunswick

When I Think of New Brunswick
New Brunswick is home to the world’s largest covered bridge and [there] are many more in the province. I drew a covered bridge on my stamp for this reason. Fishing is a big part of New Brunswick because of the rivers. There is a large job chance for fishermen and women in New Brunswick.


5. Renée-Claude D. - École Mgr-Matthieu-Mazerolle - Rivière-Verte - FSD-Nord-ouest


The significance of my design is the New Brunswick flag and the flag of l’Acadie, united to make one design, with the fusion of these two peoples.

New Brunswick's Amazing Discoveries

New Brunswick's Amazing Discoveries
New Brunswick has many discoveries that are amazing. I drew my stamp to show that, as in fishing, fiddleheads, fiddlers on the Tobique, Black-capped Chickadee, Purple Violet, historical settlements, only bilingual province and my favorite, maple syrup! I hope you enjoy my stamp.
