Visit the library to see some amazing artwork from students in grades K-12. The exhibit in- cludes 36 pieces of artwork of Iowa's first, second, and third place winners. Rae Clinkenbeard, a 16-year-old from Denison, was awarded the 2015 Iowa Best of Show winner. Rae's entry was a mallard pair done in pastels. Her original artwork was sent to Washington, D.C. to participate in the national contest and is now traveling the United States as part of the best of show winners from all fifty states. One student from Norwalk has a winning entry on display at the library. Ella Frye, a six-year-old was a first place winner in the contest. Also included in the exhibit this year are 16 winners from the Ukraine. This project, known as the Iowa USA/ Vinogradovsky District Ukraine Student Art Exchange Project, made its debut in 1999. After a break of several years, the project is up and running again. Marvin Campbell, a resident of Newton, Iowa, is the chairper- son for the Iowa/Cherkasy Sister States program OPEN - Organization Promoting Everlasting Neighbors. As part of this cultural exchange, the 2015 Iowa winners are on display in the Ukraine, while the Ukrainian con- test winners travel Iowa with the Iowa winners. Junior Duck Stamp designs are judged in the K-3, 4- 6, 7-9, and 10-12 grade groups. There are three first place, three second place and three third place winners and sixteen honorable mention winners chosen in each of the grade groups. The Best of Show is then chosen from the 12 first place winners from all age groups. The top 36 entries will be exhibited throughout Iowa from June 2015 through February 2016. The Junior Duck Stamp Contest is modeled after the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, commonly known as the "Duck Stamp." The competition is held annually and all students in grades K-12 may participate in the contest. The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Program in Iowa, managed by the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge near Prairie City, is a conservation program designed to teach students about waterfowl conservation and wetlands habitat through an art and science-based curriculum. Entries for the 2016 contest will be accepted anytime but must be postmarked by March 15, 2016. Please mail entries to the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge, P.O.
