Annual Youth Duck Calling Contest

As one of our most popular contests, the annual duck calling contest is a great way to test out those developing vocal chords to find the best water fowl! Jump right in and prepare for a loud and fun time.


Annual Youth Decoy Carving Contest

Is your child a budding artist ready to make their first (or not so first) decoy? Have them sign up for the decoy carving contest for a fun time painting, carving, and working with wood! Puddle Ducks, Diver Ducks, Geese, and Confidence decoys will be the acceptable decoys for this competition. All decoy entries must be submitted prior to the event or brought to the event and registered by 10 am.



Annual Youth Wildlife/Outdoors Photography Contest

Have you ever wanted to take that perfect picture of your last catch but didn’t know where to start? This is your child’s opportunity to learn a thing or two about photography. Entries must be printed photo format, no smaller than 4×6 and no larger than 8×10. Photos must be of some form of wildlife, natural living plant, or outdoor natural scene.

“My kids and I participate every year, they always have a blast. I would definitely recommend this event for anyone looking to spend time with loved ones while teaching them a thing or two about nature.”

Information & Donors


In 2020 we unfortunately had to cancel the event, yet still used 100% of donations to register 435 Greenwings. In 2021 we went virtual and used said donations again to build out an entirely new website plus outdoor learning videos for the event and those held in the future. And of course we returned to Owens Station in 2022 to the tune of over 300 kids! In 2023, despite bad weather, we set a record year for donations. Thanks to your continued support, we are able to put on successful events year after year for our future conservationists. Depending on the level of your donation, you will receive a host of benefits including the knowledge that your donation will go directly to support the Greenwing program and directly impact the education of youth in the state.
