We would like to congratulate Amber Rounds-McPherson from Thunder Mountain High School for winning the 2015 Juneau Raptor Center Logo Contest!
This contest was only for our local high school students grades 9-12. It was an extremely difficult decision to make as we had several talented students partake in this event.
Thanks to everyone who participated and congrats Amber!
