DUCK STAMP CONTEST WINNERS -- Lyndon Institute art students recently participated in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Junior Duck Stamp Art Program and contest. According to their website, preparation for the Junior Duck Stamp contest and involvement in the program requires students to study and understand the fundamental principles of anatomy and environmental science. The program also provides an opportunity for students to artistically express their knowledge of the beauty, diversity and interdependence of wildlife. Lyndon Institute sophomore Stephanie Bonnett, at left, and senior Allyssa Daniels captured first place with their renderings of the state's water fowl, and junior Daisy Skinner-Steele was awarded a second-place ribbon. As part of their preparation for the contest, student's in Cynthia Reeve's Art Honors and Painting classes studied waterfowl displays at the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium in St. Johnsbury to gain a three-dimensional sense of the birds they were drawing.
