The 2017 Iowa Junior Duck Stamp Contest winners will be on display from January 9 to 29 at the Pella Public Library.

The exhibit includes 36 pieces of artwork of Iowa’s first, second, and third place winners from grades K-12. Also included in the exhibit this year are 16 winners from the Ukraine. The Junior Duck Stamp Contest is modeled after the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, commonly known as the “Duck Stamp.” The competition is held annually and all students in grades K-12 may participate in the contest. The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Program, managed in Iowa by the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge near Prairie City, is a conservation program designed to teach students about waterfowl conservation and wetlands habitat through an art and science-based curriculum.

Entries for the 2018 contest must be postmarked by March 15th.
