In January 2005, the Israel Postal Authority together with the AVI CHAT Foundation and Jewish Family & Life! and their monthly educational Jewish magazine BabagaNewz, held a contest for Jewish school children in America to design an Israeli stamp which expressed their solidarity with Israel.

The children's designs illustrated their perception and deep feelings about Israel and represented all aspects of the country - landscape, culture, people and symbols. After an initial selection process in the United States, the four winning designs were chosen by the special selection committee that decides on all Israel's stamp designs.
