Just like the mushers of the Iditarod, Karlyn T. of WY showed perseverance and has been selected as the artist for the 2024 Trail Mail envelopes. Karlyn entered last year’s Trail Mail design contest as well and was a top finalist. Meeting and exceeding the criteria of content and artistic aptitude, this 13 year old’s design was selected by Jon and Jona Van Zyle from almost 30 entries to be printed on hundreds of envelopes that will be signed and carried down the trail by the 2024 Iditarod mushers. This year’s theme was : “25 Years of Teacher on the Trail“. The envelopes, a fundraiser for the Iditarod Education Department, carry a class project from the teachers that purchased a spot on a sled. In Nome, the envelopes will be collected and sent back to the classrooms via U.S. mail, having traveled the Iditarod Trail by dog team. Join us in congratulating Karlyn!
About half of the available Trail Mail spots are already taken. If you are a teacher and would like to reserve a place for your project, visit this link: 2024 Trail Mail Sales are Open!
