During a reception at the Texas A&M University Cushing Memorial Library & Archives, Congressman Bill Flores (R-Texas) announced the finalists and the winner of the 2018 Congressional Art Competition.

“Each year, I look forward to reviewing the Congressional Art Competition submissions from talented students across the 17th Congressional District of Texas. This competition provides a great opportunity for aspiring and passionate high school students to showcase their artistic talents,” Congressman Flores said.

“I congratulate Anna Herbert, of Bryan High School, on her winning submission, which will be showcased in the U.S. Capitol. I also congratulate all of our finalists and look forward to showcasing their artwork in our Texas and DC Congressional Offices. This year’s submissions were exemplary models of the quality artists and art educators in the 17th Congressional District,” Congressman Flores added.

The Congressional Art Competition is an annual contest which 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.

The winning artwork will be on display in the U.S. Capitol to represent the 17th Congressional District. The winner will be invited to Washington, D.C. to attend the unveiling of their artwork in the Capitol and a reception honoring the winners. All finalists will have their artwork on display in Congressman Flores’ Congressional Offices.
