The judging for the annual Indiana Junior Duck Stamp Contest was held virtually with five judges on April 4. There were 203 student entries in the contest this year. Camryn Temple, an 18-year-old student from North Liberty won the State Best of Show award with her entry of a beautiful mallard duck. Camryn's entry has been forwarded to the national Junior Duck Stamp contest to compete against other state winners in the judging this month.

The Junior Duck Stamp Contest promotes learning about waterfowl and conservation by creating art. The student contest is a smaller version of the adult federal Duck Stamp Art Contest. The national Junior Duck Stamp Contest winner receives a cash award and a free trip to Washington DC for the Federal Duck Stamp art competition judging. The national Junior Duck Stamp winner is also made into a collectable stamp.

The Indiana Junior Duck Stamp Contest is judged in four age categories with three first, second, and third place winners in each age category, plus 16 honorable mentions (if there are enough entries).

Several local students gained Honorable Mention honors for their artwork, which is shown above and below.
Earning this distinction were:

Gavin Ross, 8, a student at Hayden Elementary;

Lillie Johnson, 14, Cheyeanna Leslie, 14 and Hailie Purdue, 14, Jennings County Middle School.

Emerson Lindsey's and Cyrus Lindsey's entries were also sent to this newspaper for publication as local winners, but their schools were not included.
