In 1982, Congress established an art competition to showcase the talents of our nation’s young artists. Each spring, thousands of high school students from around the country participate for the opportunity to have their art work displayed prominently in the tunnels and walkways of the U.S. Capitol Building.
Annie German’s winning piece of artwork will represent Arizona’s 6th District in the 32nd Annual Congressional Art Show and will be on display for a year in the United States Capitol campus along with other Congressional state winners. The second and third place pieces by Chaz Donelson and Nika Korchok Wakulich respectively, will be displayed in Rep. Schweikert’s Washington and Scottsdale office.
