AAPE - Youth Champion of Champions - 2011 Winners

Adam Mangold of New Jersey is the winner of the 2011 Youth Champion of Champions competition sponsored by the American Association of Philatelic Exhibitors. The event was held in conjunction with the National Topical Stamp Show, a World Series of Philately exhibition held in Brookfield (Milwaukee), Wisconsin, June 24-26, 2011. The Championship, which is underwritten by a grant from World Columbian Stamp Expo, is directed by Robert and Carol Barr of Downers Grove, Illinois.

This year’s competition included fifteen exhibits (32 frames) prepared by youth aged 8 – 18. Exhibitors (which qualified by meeting the requirements of the AAPE Youth Grand Award at nationally accredited shows in the U.S. and Canada) vied for the designation "Youth Champion of Champions" and for many other donated awards.
