LAKEWOOD, Col. – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced today that a canvasback duck was selected to appear on the 2013-2014 Federal Junior Duck Stamp. The design for the new stamp, painted by 6-year-old Madison Grimm of Burbank, South Dakota was chosen by a panel of judges at the national Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest, held at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virgina. 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. For the effort, Grimm earned the $5,000 first place prize. Proceeds from sales of the $5 Junior Duck Stamp support environmental education.
