Federal Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest

Congratulations to Veronica Salter, 17, of Thunder Mountain High School in Juneau, who took top honors in the 2017 Alaska Junior Duck Stamp Contest with a painting of fulvous whistling ducks. Veronica also won the Best of Show in the Conservation Message competition with her thoughtful message: “We conserve not only to protect what has been in the past, but to benefit what will be in the future.” A panel of five judges chose Veronica's artwork out of the 106 entries from across the state to represent Alaska in the National Junior Duck Stamp Contest that will be held on April 21st.
