Kal Athannassov, 17, of Colorado Springs, won Best of Show in Colorado at the 2012 Junior Duck Stamp Contest.

His acrylic painting of a black-bellied whistling duck, entitled "Serenity,” was selected from hundreds of entries and will represent Colorado in the National Junior Duck Stamp Competition in Washington, D.C., later in April. Athannassov is a student at Vista Ridge High School.

Entries were judged by a panel of waterfowl enthusiasts, biologists and professional wildlife artists. Recognition for all participants and prizes for the top 25 drawings in each of four age groups (Kindergarten-Grade 3, Grades 4-6, Grades 7-9, and Grades 10-12) are awarded each year.

This year’s award ceremony will take place May 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. at The Arvada Center for The Performing Arts. Noreen Walsh, the Fish and Wildlife Service’s assistant regional director for the Mountain-Prairie Region, will be the keynote speaker.
