Duck Stamp contest

Bureau Valley High School students competed in the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Contest for the state of Illinois. Students were given the opportunity to learn about the importance of the wetlands, the important characteristics of wetland habitats and the individual characteristics of their chosen waterfowl. The students researched their bird as well as a variety of waterfowl artists. They then used a variety of skills in techniques in acrylics, colored pencils, ebony pencil and oil pastels to create a picture of their chosen waterfowl. Group 4, which consists of sophomore, juniors and seniors, earned 22 or of the possible 25 state awards.
