Congressional Art Competition winners announced in Green Bay
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The winners of the Congressional Art Competition were announced Sunday in Green Bay.
This year, 47 high school students from across Wisconsin's 8th district entered their art pieces.
The first place winner will have their art displayed in the Capitol Building for a year.
Second through fourth place winners will have their art displayed in Rep. Mike Gallagher's offices in D.C., Green Bay and Appleton.
Gallagher was at the Neville Public Museum Sunday to announce the winners.
"All congressional districts around the country do it and we just ask high school kids to submit different works of art and as you can see looking around, it's just incredible," said Rep. Mike Gallagher.
"I think it's great to bring awareness to how much art is actually around the Fox Cities. I think that's an amazing thing. So yeah, I would encourage other people to enter into it," said.
Each congressional district offers an art competition in the spring that started in 1982.
More than 650,000 high school students have participated.
