For the second time, artwork by Adam Grimm of Burbank, South Dakota was selected as the winner of the Federal Duck Stamp contest - the only juried art competition sponsored by the federal government. Grimm previously won the contest in 1999, with his oil painting of a pair of canvasbacks taking the latest prize on September 28, 2013 during the contest proceedings at the Maumee Bay State Park and Conference Center in Oregon, Ohio. The 2014-2015 Federal Duck Stamp, featuring the winning art, will go on sale in late June 2014. Runners-up were Hoyt Smith of Tulsa, Oklahoma (2nd place) and Ron Louque of Charlottesville, Virginia (3rd place) with acrylic paintings of a Cinnamon teal and canvasback trio respectively. Hunters and wildlife enthusiasts are encouraged to purchase a Duck Stamp, as proceeds are used to purchase key waterfowl habitat areas in the National Wildlife Refuge System. The stamp sells for $15 and raises about $25 million each year.
