The Junior Duck Stamp Coordinators are the first point of contact for the more than 30,000 students and teachers who utilize or participate in the Junior Duck Stamp educational activities and art contest each year. These sixty individuals manage volunteers, host events, coordinate outreach, and facilitate partnerships among non-profit organizations, state agencies and local school districts in addition to their designated employment duties.

Thank you for the fantastic work you do to make this program such a success !

Annual Order Descriptions
Review details below for descriptions of the annual order items. >> 2009 Order Form (.doc)

Participant Certificates
Certificates should be given to each participant in the state contest. Sometimes teachers will contact you to ask for additional certificates for students that participated in the classroom but did not send an entry into the state contest. The certificates do not include a stamp image. A link to the file to print your own certificates will be posted in 2009. For an example of what other regions use as a design for their certificates, click here.

Art Mats
Many states choose to use the mats to frame the original top 100 pieces in the contest and send those out on a miniature art tour for a year or until the end of the school year. There should be 9 x 12 photo paper available if you would like to continue to print scanned copies of the original. Order the number of mats you will use for your program.

Ribbons
102 ribbons comprise the standard order. There are 100 for the 36 first through third places, 64 honorable mentions and 2 best of show ribbons (one for display and one for the artist). You may order standard or none.

NEW! 2008 Annual Report Document
The revised annual report document is available below. Please fill out the annual report and email it (print it out after you filled it in) to your regional coordinator no later than January 15, 2009. Regional coordinators please submit all state reports to the National Junior Duck Stamp Coordinator by January 20, 2009.

The annual reports serve multiple purposes. They serve as your financial report, which you are required to submit to the Washington Office as a condition for receiving stamp sales funds. They are a feedback mechanism. It's important to the Washington Office and the Regional Coordinators that we communicate with you and hear your thoughts on the program regularly. Finally, it's prescribes a time for you to reflect on the year, program, accomplishments, and your goals.
