A South Dakota artist is the winner of the 2013 federal duck stamp contest.

Adam Grimm, of Burbank, South Dakota, won first place in the annual U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service art contest.

Grimm’s oil painting of a canvasback duck will be made into the 2014-15 federal duck stamp, which will go on sale in late June 2014.

The stamp sells for $15 and raises about $25 million each year to help conserve and protect wetlands. It will also fund the North American  Wetlands Conservation Act, which provides for Federal funding to encourage partnerships to protect, enhance, restore, and manage wetlands and other habitats for migratory birds and other fish and wildlife to carry out the North American Waterfowl Management Plan.

It’s the second time that Grimm has won the contest. His art previously appeared on the 2000-01 federal duck stamp. (shown left)

There was controversy earlier this year when Grimm’s daughter was disqualified after she was told she had won the junior duck stamp competition. The award later was restored.
