The depth of talent and creativity displayed by this year’s entrants is exceptional. I extend my sincere congratulations to all of our winners and honorable mentions. I am proud that the artwork of our District’s first place winner, Mattie Stubbs, will be displayed in our nation’s Capitol for the next year.”
The annual Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity for high school artists to showcase their talent around the district and at the U.S. Capitol. The winner is eligible to receive a $3,000 scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design and will be featured alongside entries from other congressional districts in the U.S. Capitol Building.
Each high school may submit up to five entries. The following high schools participated in the Congressional Art Competition: Armuchee, Gordon Central, Darlington, Cedartown, Rome, Shiloh Hills, North Paulding, and Kennesaw Mountain.
