Junior Duck Stamp contest

The Junior Duck Stamp art contest celebrates its 15th year in 2007, and the program anticipates that 27,000 students will participate this year. Ranging from kindergarten through high school, the students submit drawings of a duck or goose, usually after learning about wetlands and visiting a national wildlife refuge.

State winners enter the national contest, and that winner's art becomes a stamp, is sold at federal post offices for $5. The proceeds go toward cash awards for winning students and environmental education. You can find more details about the contest here. The official deadline is March 15, although some states have earlier deadlines.

Please encourage budding artists to participate in this contest! Rebeccah Nastav, 15, of Missouri won the 2006 contest with this Redhead.
