South Dakota youth wins Federal Junior Duck Stamp competition

April 22, 2013 at 09:38 PM

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service


A six-year-old girl has been named the winner of the 2013-2014 Federal Junior Duck Stamp competition.

The design for the new stamp, painted by 6-year-old Madison Grimm of Burbank, S.D., was chosen by a panel of judges at the national Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest, held at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, W. Va.

The oil painting, which won the South Dakota State Junior Duck Stamp Contest, was judged the winner among Best-of-Show entries from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Proceeds from sales of the $5 Junior Duck Stamp support environmental education.

Peter Coulter, 17, of Washington, Mo., won second place with an acrylic painting depicting a pair of snow geese.

Third place went to Drake Schlosser, 17, of Rubicon, Wis., for his acrylic rendition of a common goldeneye.

The 2013 Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation Message Contest winner was 13-year-old Nick Kolkmeyer from Union, Ky., with his entry: “Nature is our history, conservation is our future.”
