The ducks have landed!

Every year (for the past 20+ years!) the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service sponsors an art competition to select an image for Federal Junior Duck Stamp–a collectible stamp that is sold to support youth conservation education programs.

K – 12 students from all over the country submit “duck art” for their state’s competition; then first, second, and third place winners are selected in each age group. The “Best of Show” is selected to compete in the national Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest.

For the next month or so we have 24 of the paintings that were submitted for this year’s state competition–including the best of show winner that went on to the national competition. Come in and check them out–they are pretty amazing, and beautiful.

For more information on the Junior Duck stamp program go to: www.fws.gov/juniorduck 

And here’s this year’s winner: duck stamp art winner
