South dakota Junior Duck program

The Junior Duck Stamp Program is an annual art contest that provides students with the opportunity to learn about biology and express their knowledge of the beauty, diversity, and interdependence of wildlife through art.

The Junior Duck Stamp Contest, partnered with a dynamic arts curriculum, teaches wetlands and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school.

Since the Junior Duck Stamp Contest was introduced in South Dakota in 1993, over 10,000 students have submitted artwork in the state.  In 2017, nearly 500 South Dakota students participated in the program; and throughout the United States, over 27,000 students submitted artwork to a state contest.

Annual revenue from the sales of Junior Duck Stamps raises an estimated $200,000 annually to fund scholarships, support the contest, and to create environmental education opportunities for students who participate in the program.

Thousands of dollars in prizes for South Dakota winners! Art Supplies, Books and DVD’s, Fine Art Prints, T-Shirts, and more.
