2020 Wyoming Jr Duck Stamp Best of Show - Megan Cotter - 512x384

 

Megan Cotter's Wyoming State 2020 Best of Show colored pencil, titled "Redhead Pair," went on to represent Wyoming at the National Jr. Duck Stamp Design Competition.  The winner of the National Stamp Design Competition is printed on the Junior Duck Stamp, which is available for purchase at www.duckstamp.com.  Proceeds from the sales of Junior Duck Stamps go to support conservation education programs and prizes for the students who participate in the stamp design contest. 

The Junior Duck Stamp Design Competition is open to kids from kindergarten up to 12th grade.  Entries are split into one of four age groups, listed below, and the top 25 of each age group is placed.  Entries must follow contest rules, such as on a 12 x 9 inch paper or canvas, no more than 1/4" thick and be suitable for reproduction on a 1.5 by 1 inch stamp.  Artwork is judged on the basis of original design, anatomical accuracy, artistic composition and suitability for reproduction on a 1.5" by 1" stamp.  One overall Wyoming State Best of Show is chosen from the top places of all the age groups and that one entry advances on to the National Federal Jr. Duck Stamp Design Competition.  Students can also include on their entry forms a "Conservation Message," which summarizes what they've learned through participation in the Jr. Duck Stamp Program.  One overall Wyoming State Best of Show Conservation Message is chosen which also advances to the National Competition.  This year's Wyoming Conservation Message was written by Desiree Plowman of Cokeville:  "your environment, your responsibility, your future."  Wyoming also awards a "Betty Nelson Artistic Promise Award" to one of the top places in the younger age groups for a standout work of art by a student who shows great artistic promise.  This year's Betty Nelson award went to Bridger Hatling, age 8, of Pine Haven for his piece titled "Mr. Red."
