Congratulations to Alain Soltys-Gray, 15, of Thunder Mountain High School in Juneau, who took top honors in the 2019 Alaska Junior Duck Stamp Contest with a painting of a harlequin duck. A panel of five judges chose Alain’s artwork out of the 341 entries from across the state to represent Alaska in the National National Junior Duck Stamp Contest that will be held on April 19 at the Patuxent Research Refuge in Laurel, Maryland.
Best of Show Conservation Message went to Arianna Csech, 17, also of Thunder Mountain High School in Juneau, for her thoughtful words “Ducks are beautiful like art. We need to protect their world art museum.”
