I would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s 11th Congressional District Art Contest for high school students.
The first place winner is Valerie Whitmire. Valerie is a senior at Asheville High School. Valerie’s art work will be displayed for one year in the United States Capitol Building, which showcases the winners of over 300 Congressional district art contests from around the nation. She is also receiving $500 and a $3,000 per-year scholarship to attend the Savannah School of Art and Design.
The second place winner is Sara Bernardi, who is a senior at Tuscola High School. Sara’s art work will be displayed for one year in my Washington Congressional office. She received a $200 prize.
Third place went to Katherine Gregory, a junior at Tuscola High School. Katherine’s art work will also be displayed for one year in my Asheville Congressional office. She received a $100 prize.
Congratulations to each of these competition winners!
