Art teacher wins contest

Darby Mumford of Topsham, Maine, an art teacher at Lisbon Falls Christian Academy, took first prize in the 2000 Maine Migratory Waterfowl Stamp Contest. This year’s subject was the eider duck. Mumford’s colored pencil scene of a male and female eider reflected in the waters off of Flying Point in Casco Bay garnered the most points from the panel of fives judges.

"I entered a watercolor in the 1996 contest, so I was familiar with the contest. I had been fooling around with colored pencils in my class, and I felt that this was an excellent medium for the eiders," said Mumford.

This is the first time that Mumford’s work has been honored as the Maine Migratory Waterfowl Stamp. Mumford will receive a cash award of $1,000 and a sheet of 10 stamps with her design on them. The Maine Migratory Waterfowl Hunting Stamp contest is open only to Maine residents.
