McCarthy Announces Congressional Art Competition Winners

Yesterday, Congressman Kevin McCarthy announced the winners of the 40th Annual “An Artistic Discovery” Congressional Art Competition for high school students in our community. Students from across the district had the opportunity to submit a personal piece of art for consideration earlier this year.

McCarthy released the following statement:

“The artwork submitted this year reflects the great creativity coming from our community’s students, and I am glad that the Congressional Art Competition gives me a platform to celebrate their exceptional artwork every year. Congratulations to all the finalists, including our overall winner, Lily, on her impressive piece, “Want some?” I look forward to seeing her art displayed in the U.S. Capitol!”
