Junior Duck Stamp Contest Information!
The Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest is the culmination of the Junior Duck Stamp educational program. After studying waterfowl anatomy and habitat, students may express their newfound knowledge by drawing, painting or sketching a picture of an eligible North American waterfowl species.
Because students express themselves best in different formats, the conservation message contest gives them an opportunity to use the written word to express their knowledge. Students from across the United States submit their artwork to their state, territory or district competition.
The  "Best of Show" from each competition is submitted to the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest, where a panel of judges will select one image to become the next Junior Duck Stamp."

Vermont Historical Society:
This is a state contest for "All Vermont students in grades 5-12 and home study students ages 10-18 are eligible for Vermont History Day...(Students) in grades 6-12 are eligible to advance to the National History Day contest!"
This is a great opportunity for students to engage in project-based inquiry! According to the "Vermont History Day provides students with an opportunity to do primary source research and express what they have learned through creative and original dramatic performances, documentaries, research papers, websites, or three-dimensional exhibits. Successful entries show a clear relation to the annual theme and an understanding of the historical significance of the chosen topic. Students meet with judges at the state contest and receive feedback about their projects."
The theme for 2016 is "Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History."
"The entry forms (PDF) are due by March 8, 2016. Students are encouraged to nominate their projects for Special Prizes."
Please check-out the i-Media Center's Research Guide/Pathfinder for Vermont History.  Here you will find the information you need, to conduct primary source research, which is necessary to win this competition!  If you have any questions, please contact the Librarian:
