“Every time you enter a contest you hope to win, but don’t expect to, and when you do it’s always a pleasant surprise,” Calpino said.

The artwork will be featured on the stamps hunters purchase to hunt all migratory game birds in the state, with the proceeds funding migratory game bird research and habitat enhancement on public lands.
