An Ellsworth teenager has won the 2015 Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest!

Kyle Lima of Ellsworth and student at Ellsworth High School has won the "Best of Show" in the Maine competition of the 2015 Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest!

The drawing of the Northern Pintail was one of 473 pieces of waterfowl artwork that were submitted statewide.  This past Friday, a panel of five judges at the University of Maine selected Kyle's as the "Best of Show," according to Steve Agius, Maine Junior Duck Stamp Coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Maine Best of Show artwork will now compete in the national contest in April. Kyle's artwork will also be included in an exhibit that will tour the United States for the coming year.
