This program is open to K-12 students attending public, private, or home schools in the United States and the U.S. Territories.

If you can draw, you can enter the Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest.  It is part of a school program to learn about waterfowl. Students study bird anatomy and habitat and demonstrate their knowledge by drawing, painting or sketching a picture of waterfowl.

Students from around the United States submit drawings to their state, territory or district competition. Winners from these competitions, called the "Best of Show," are then submitted to the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest.

Entries will be judged on the basis of design, anatomical accuracy, artistic composition, and suitability for reproduction on a 1” by 1 ½” stamp.

South Carolina: January 10
