The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program (JDS) is a dynamic arts and science curriculum that teaches wetlands and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program incorporates scientific and wildlife management principles into a visual arts curriculum, with participants completing a JDS design as their visual “term papers."
In 2014, Louisiana's number of JDS entries more than doubled from 2013 with 456 entries. Entries were divided into four groups for judging: Group 1 (Grades K-3), Group 2 (grades 4-6), Group 3 (grades 7-9), and Group 4 (grades 10-12). Three winners from each group were chosen by the judges and a Best of Show was selected from the 12 winners. A huge thank you goes out to the participants and all of the teachers, parents, and educators who made JDS a part of their arts and science curriculum!
