Congressional Art Competition Winner

Each year, I look forward to reviewing the Congressional Art Competition submissions from students across the 17th Congressional District of Texas. This competition provides a great opportunity for talented and aspiring high school students to showcase their artistic skills.  This year’s winner is Genevieve (Gena) St. Clair, a student at Allen Academy in Bryan, with her piece ‘Women of the World.’ 

The Congressional Art Competition is an annual contest that encourages and recognizes the artistic talents of students from each participating Congressional District throughout the country. Since 1982, high school students from around the country have competed in the competition to have their artwork shown in the U.S. Capitol.  Gena’s painting will be seen by thousands of visitors from all over the world when the Capitol is reopened.  Thank you to Gena and all the other talented high school students who submitted entries this year. We also want to thank all the Art teachers and parents who supported the students who participated this year, including Jennifer Easterling, the Art Teacher at Allen Academy.  In addition, two of our local art experts, Stephanie Sale and Benjamin Knox were helpful to Team Flores in judging the entries in this year’s competition.
