A display of the nation’s best Junior Duck Stamp art from 2011 is now on display at Dickson Mounds Museum near Lewistown until Oct. 19.

A pair of ringneck ducks painted by Abraham Hunter, 17, of Vienna was selected to appear on the 2011-2012 Federal Junior Duck Stamp.

Hunter’s acrylic painting, which won the Illinois State Junior Duck Stamp Contest, was judged the winner among Best-of-Show entries from all 50 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Proceeds from sales of the Junior Duck Stamp - which the Fish and Wildlife Service sells for $5 to stamp collectors, conservationists and the public - support environmental and conservation education, and awards for contest winners.

Hunter’s artwork was chosen by a panel of judges at the National Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest, held at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia.

The National Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest is the culmination of a year-long Junior Duck Stamp conservation curriculum used by K-12 educators across the nation.

More than 27,000 Junior Duck Stamp design entries were entered in state competitions held from February until mid-April.

A gallery of all Best of Show entries can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/usfwsnortheast/sets/72157626449011502/ .

The Illinois State Museum - Dickson Mounds is located between Lewistown and Havana off Illinois Routes 78 and 97.
