It’s time once again for the TEC Design Contest! The theme this year is “My Dream Vacation”.  With things returning to normal, what would be your Dream Vacation for 2022? A Tropical Island? A Cruise? A Road Trip? A Sunny Beach? Your Favorite Amusement Park? Let your imagination run wild. The winning design will be announced in the April TEC News. TEC will produce the winning design on U.S cents and distribute one to each TEC member. Young Numismatists will be judged separately from regular members and a winner from each group will be selected.

The winning designer of each group will receive:

  • 25 elongated pennies rolled with the winning design
  • One set of denominational coins rolled with the winning design
  • One free year of TEC Membership
  • The winner will be a member of the judging panel for the next year’s contest
