Junior Duck Stamp Contest Entries on Display at Buchanan House
Maine student entries in the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Annual Junior Duck Stamp Contest are on display from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, March 27, at Buchanan Alumni House at the University of Maine.
The federal program for K–12 students incorporates scientific and wildlife management principles into a visual arts program. It annually introduces youth across the country to wetlands, National Wildlife Refuges and art concepts.
The winning design is used to create the Junior Duck Stamp the following year, which is sold by the U.S. Postal Service. Proceeds support conservation education and provide awards and scholarships for students, teachers and schools that participate in the program.
