The POST Luxembourg Grand Prix SI

The POST Luxembourg Grand Prix

Every two years, POST Luxembourg organises a philatelic drawing competition in which children at primary school and young people at secondary school are invited to take part. The theme this year was “biodiversity”. Biodiversity encompasses the various different life forms (animals, plants, fungi and bacteria), the different habitats in which these species live (eco-systems such as forests and bodies of water) and the genetic diversity within species (such as subspecies, varieties and breeds). Biodiversity is the natural inheritance we bequeath to future generations.

More than 1700 children and young people took part in the drawing competition. The prize was awarded on 28th June 2016 at the headquarters of POST Technologies in Cloche d’Or.

Here are our winners: Yann Klees and Christine Guirsch
