U.S. #1085 honors the importance of children in promoting world peace. Fittingly, the stamp was designed by a school boy. Ronald Dias, a 19-year-old student at Roosevelt High School in Lanikai, Oahu, Hawaii, won a nationwide contest for his design of the stamp.
 
The shining key in the design represents the “Key of Friendship,” used to unlock the “doors to peace.” The stamp is typically called the “Children’s Stamp.”
