    challenge: to create a series of commemorative stamps and supporting materials for the U.S. Postal Service
    solution: As we learn more about the effects of colony collapse disorder, it becomes increasingly pertinent that people understand the role of bees in our society. This special stamp release by the USPS explores a few of the many types of bees important to American agriculture. Each stamp features a different bee species, along with one crop they are responsible for pollinating. The series aims to educate people on the necessity of bee security, while still maintaining value as a collectible item.
