St. Charles resident wins turkey stamp contest

ST. PAUL —  St. Charles artist Micah Hanson won the 2019 turkey stamp contest. The painting was selected by judges from among 12 submissions for the annual contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Hanson’s painting will be featured on the 2019 turkey stamp. His artwork was previously featured on the 2011 and 2015 turkey stamps, and he also has won Minnesota contests for the 2000 and 2003 trout and salmon stamp, both with a brown trout.

The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work.

The 2019 turkey stamp will be available for sale March 1, 2019.
