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.

Si youn Kim
Si youn Kim came from Pusan, Korea, and lived in Vietnam until her family moved to New Jersey when she was a teenager. She has always enjoyed drawing and painting but had studied art professionally for only two years before winning the National Junior Duck Stamp Contest. Acrylic and charcoals are her favorite drawing media. When she saw pictures of the king eider it inspired her to research the sea duck. Her father, who owns an architecture company inspires her. Si youn plans to go to art school and become an architect.
