South Dakota Girl Reinstated as Duck Stamp Winner
6 Year old Madison Grimm from Burbank, South Dakota has been reinstated as the winner of the junior duck stamp program winner. On April 19th she was notified by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that her oil painting of a canvasback duck was this year’s winner. But just days later, they told her that she has been disqualified for violating the rules.
Well on Thursday, the agency has reversed their ruling and announced that Madison is this years winner. They said:
“The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced today that after careful reconsideration, it will reinstate Madison Grimm, 6, of Burbank, S.D., as the winner of the 2013 Federal Junior Duck Stamp Contest.”
