What is a Junior Duck Stamp?
The Junior Duck Stamp is a pictorial stamp produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to recognize the conservation efforts of young people and support environmental and conservation education programs in the United States. The art competition is the culmination of students' study of waterfowl and wetlands conservation in the classroom, homeschool, or non-formal education setting, often using the Junior Duck Stamp Program educational curriculum.

Aremy McCann
Eighteen-year-old Aremy McCann of St. Joseph, Minn., was judged the top artist in the 2001 Junior Duck Stamp Contest. Although trumpeter swans aren't ducks, they are migrating waterfowl, and eligible for the contest. Aremy's home state of Minnesota is home to many trumpeter swans, as they breed in central and northwest North America. Home-schooled by her mother, Tammy McCann, Aremy used acrylics for her painting.
