insightsU.S. Notes Cartoon Contest October 10, 2011
October 10, 2011 03:38 PMTime marches on. I have been running the cartoon caption contest in the U.S. Notes column since 1986. Most contests have drawn between 50 and 200 entries, but the last couple of years have seen a gradual decrease in entries. The current contest using the 34¢ Mentoring a Child stamp, shown in Figure 4, brought in just 33 entries from 21 readers.
