Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest

Learn about conservation and develop your artistic talents!


All students in kindergarten through grade twelve are encouraged to participate in the Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program annual art and conservation message contest as part of the Junior Duck Stamp Program curriculum.


The art and conservation message competition serve as the "final project" -- an opportunity for students to share what they have learned about waterfowl and habitat conservation through the curriculum or through their own study and observation. Entries are judged on both artistic merit and scientific accuracy with which specific waterfowl species are depicted.

What can students learn from the contest?
The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is an integrated art and science activity developed to teach environmental science and habitat conservation.
