The APS is proud to re-launch the chapter newsletter and website competitions, now named the Star Route Awards. Since the mid-1900s, the Star Routes were the most challenging routes in the country to deliver U.S. mail. Congress called for contractors to deliver the mail with “celerity, certainty, and security,” soon replaced with three stars. Our chapters serve and grow the hobby in those same tough terrains with that same mission. We are excited to share with you our winners of 2021 Star Route Awards on October 14th at 6:00 pm, EDT U.S. and Canada.
