2016 Congressional Art Competition
On Monday, my office hosted a reception to announce the winners of the 2016 Congressional Art Competition for the First District, as well as to honor all of the students who submitted artwork.
The overall winner was Hannah Ferguson from Cincinnati Christian Schools.
Her entry, a drawing with prisma colored pencils entitled "Fixing Myself," will be on display in the U.S. Capitol for one year, alongside winning artwork from other congressional districts across the country.
Drew Brown from Elder High School finished second.
His artwork, "A Tale of a Whale," will be displayed in my D.C. office for a year.
The Warren County Honoree was Alexis Jansen from Dayton Christian High School.
Her artwork, "Wolf," will be displayed in my Warren County office for one year.
Our Hamilton County Honoree was Maria Heisel from Seton High School.
Maria’s entry, "Cincinnati Suspension Bridge," will be on display in my downtown Cincinnati office for one year as well.
Congratulations to all of the students who submitted entries for the competition. The overall quality of the artwork this year was outstanding. Below are some additional pictures from the reception.
