2022 Junior Duck Stamp Contest Results Are In!

This year will mark the 3rd Virginia Junior Duck Stamp Contest held by the Potomac River National Wildlife Refuge Complex (Occoquan Bay, Mason Neck, Featherstone NWR) and the first year the contest was able to be held in person at the refuge. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the last two contests were held virtually, but this year with restrictions lifting, judges were able to meet in person to review the artwork. Out of 179 students from across Virginia, 36 students placed in either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, and 57 students placed as honorable mentions. The staff and judges would like to thank all 179 students for all their hard work and dedication. Below are the winners of this year's Junior Duck Stamp Contest:
