A student at Vista Ridge High School in District 49 will soon have art on display in Washington D.C.
Kal Athannassov, 16, won "Best of Show" in Colorado at the 2011 Junior Duck Stamp Contest. Kal's artwork was selected from entries from across Colorado. His acrylic paint rendition of a Fulvous Whistling Duck, entitled "Before The Storm," will represent Colorado and be entered at the National Junior Duck Stamp Competition in Washington, D.C. at the end of April.
The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is an educational program designed for all public, private, and home schooled students in grades K-12 sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
