TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A South Dakota artist is the winner of the 2013 federal duck stamp contest held in northwest Ohio.

Adam Grimm of Burbank, S.D., placed first in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service art contest judged Saturday afternoon at Maumee Bay State Park near Toledo. There were 202 entries.

Grimm's oil painting of a canvasback will be made into the 2014-15 federal duck stamp, which will go on sale in June 2014. Grimm grew up in Elyria, Ohio, west of Cleveland.

It's the second time that Grimm has won the contest. His art previously appeared on the 2000-01 federal duck stamp.

The duck stamp serves as a hunting license and entrance pass for national wildlife refuges.
