Jr. Duck Stamp Program
Do you love to draw? Have you ever drawn a duck or goose? The United States Fish & Wildlife Service hosts a contest every year for budding wildlife artists. It is based on the National Duck Stamp contest but is for youths in grades K-12. Entries are submitted by age group and state. The "Best of Show" winners of the state contests are then sent in to be judged nationally with the top winner getting $5000 and their artwork made into a stamp to be sold in post offices and sporting good stores. Funds generated from the sales of Duck Stamps are used to purchase waterfowl habitat.
Entries are due March 15th and can be submitted individually or as a classroom. For more information, guidelines, state coordinators, and applications visit the Junior Duck Stamp website.
