Duck Stamp Contest

I invited a few students to participate in a special art class as a reward for good behavior in their classes. This elite group of Sixteen 2nd and 3rd graders came to the art room for a special lesson on wetland conservation. We studied photographs of ducks and watched a movie of ducks swimming around in a pond. We talked about why we needed to conserve the wetland habitats for the ducks. After studying the ducks, each child drew their very own duck with owl pastels and then painted their picture with watercolors. We submitted these pictures to the Utah Division of the Federal Duck Stamp contest. Six students were selected as winners and are invited to a special luncheon to receive ribbons. We are proud of their outstanding work.
