Federal Junior Duck Stamp

December 12, 2018

Statewide call for student artwork

Maine Audubon is collaborating with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and L.L. Bean for the 25th annual statewide opportunity for the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Program. The program has a free downloadable curricular guide to help support learning about waterfowl habitat and conservation. The guides provide fun, age-level appropriate activities that will enhance curriculum and students’ knowledge of wildlife and habitat.

Students will be able to submit an entry of approved waterfowl art into the competition. Designs are judged in four age categories, with awards for first, second, and third places and honorable mentions. Entries must be postmarked by March 1, 2019. This year judging will take place at the L.L. Bean Flagship Store in Freeport, ME on Wednesday, March 13, with award presentations on Saturday, March 23, at 9 a.m.

2018 Maine Best of Show

The Maine Best of Show entry will compete with contest winners from other states in a national competition. The first place national winning design is used to create the Federal Junior Duck Stamp. Proceeds from the sale of Junior Duck Stamps (which cost $5 each) support conservation education by providing awards and scholarships for students, teachers, and schools.

Submission deadline must be postmarked by March 1, 2019.
