The nationwide Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest is accepting submissions through the end of this week.
This contest is “the culmination of the Junior Duck Stamp educational program,” which is available for teachers, parents, and students. After studying waterfowl, students may use what they know and submit a drawing, painting or sketch of an eligible North American waterfowl species for consideration for next year’s Junior Duck Stamp.
The Best of Show from each state’s competition is submitted to the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest, where a panel of judges will select one image to become the next Junior Duck Stamp.
Any student kindergarten through grade 12 attending public, private, or home school in the US or US Territories is eligible to enter, as long as the student is a US Citizen, resident alien, or national. Only one entry may be submitted for each student. To participate, students should review the FWS brochure read contest rules, and confirm they meet eligibility requirements. E
