Duck stamp design contest

VERMONT- The annual statewide junior duck stamp conservation and design program is underway.  The US  Fish and Wildlife Service invites students from pre-K to grade 12 to create designs featuring ducks, swans or geese in their natural habitats.  Designs are judged in four age categories, with awards for first-, second-, and third-places and honorable mentions.  Entries must be received by Friday, March 1, 2019. This year the judging will take place in St. Johnsbury.
The Vermont best of show entry will compete with contest winners from other states in a national competition in Washington, DC.  
The first-place national winning design is used to create the federal junior duck stamp.  Proceeds from the sale of junior duck stamps support conservation education by providing awards and scholarships for students, teachers, and schools.
Modeled after the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s annual federal duck stamp competition, the junior duck stamp contest is part of an educational curriculum that teaches students about waterfowl, the importance of wetlands, and habitat conservation.  Proceeds from the sale of federal duck stamps protect wetlands through land acquisition by the National Wildlife Refuge System.
