Idaho students are being asked to draw waterfowl for the 2018 Idaho Junior Duck Stamp art competition.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Federal Junior Duck Stamp Program and Art Competition is open to all students from kindergarten to grade 12.
This nationwide education program uses art and science to teach the value of wetland and waterfowl conservation. It includes a statewide art competition that culminates with the “best in show” from each state competing at the national competition. The winner sees his artwork on a duck stamp that supports wetland and waterfowl conservation.
The deadline for all original artwork is March 15. Artwork should be mailed to Idaho’s 2018 Junior Duck Stamp coordinator, Leith Edgar, at Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office, 1387 S. Vinnell Way, Suite 368, Boise 83709.
