A Quarter Century of Junior Duck Stamps
2018-2019 marks the 26th year of the Junior Duck Stamp Program. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pleased to celebrate a continuing legacy of Conservation Through the Arts.
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.
A winning stamp design is selected at a national art contest. The first place national winner of the art contest graces that year's Junior Duck Stamp and is sold by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Postal Service and Amplex Corporation for $5. The first stamp, issued in 1993-1994, was painted by Jason Parsons of Illinois. All proceeds of the stamp are used to fund environmental education programs, recognize and award students for their work, and expand the conservation education program.
