Hosting the Art Competition Winner in Washington

Every year, thousands of high school students from every congressional district submit their artwork to their member of Congress for the annual Congressional Art Competition. Helping inspire young people to become active in the things they are passionate about, like art, is one of the best parts of my job.
It was great to host Drew Scott, winner of this year’s Congressional Art Contest for the 27th District of Texas, and her family in my Washington, D.C. office. A junior at Rockport-Fulton High School, Drew won this year’s contest with her original colored pencil drawing, “Complimentary Calico.” Her artwork will hang in the Cannon Tunnel to the Capitol Building for the next year. Congratulations Drew, I hope you enjoyed your trip to Washington!
