Cinnamon teal painting wins award
Rachel Thelen, a Park Rapids senior, is the state champion of the Junior Duck Stamp Contest.
She won for her painting of a cinnamon teal duck floating on a body of water. Her painting will be judged in the national competition this month.
Thelen said she decided to paint the cinnamon teal after a lot of research.
"I flipped through Ducks Unlimited magazines and it stood out more than others," she said.
