Young Students Compete for Junior Duck Stamp Contest
Congratulations to several of our Lower School students for being recognized in the 2021 Florida Federal Junior Duck Stamp Contest. Their drawings were selected by judges at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge from hundreds of entries from all over the state.
Mrs. Einstein shared, “The competition was fierce this year, and many of the featured winners were from the high school division. These four kids did a great job to be featured when they are so young!”

The Junior Duck Stamp Contest is modeled after the Federal Duck Stamp Program, which was started by Jay Norwood “Ding” Darling in 1934 as a way to raise funds for purchasing refuge lands across the country. Click here to read more about the Junior Duck Stamp Conservation Program.
