The federal government accused a 6-year-old of plagiarism and stripped her of her victory in this year's national Junior Duck Stamp contest, leaving the youngest-ever winner in tears and igniting a fierce debate in the wildlife art community over artistic techniques, precocious youngsters and catty parents.
Rachel Levin, a spokeswoman for the duck stamp program, said the rules may not have been as clear as they should have been.
"I honestly don't know. This all happened very quickly, it was a very unfortunate situation, it was a very hard decision for us to make," Ms. Levin said. "Now we are presented with an opportunity — we know we need to go back to the rules, clarify those and possibly discuss some standard procedures when concerns are raised about winning art."
