The Congressional Art Show is a nationwide competition open to high school students. Garden Spot High School participated in the 16th Congressional District hosted by Congressman Joseph Pitts. Artwork and Photographs were judged and selected by three teachers, Toni Myers, Katie Diorio and Todd Reitnouer, for entry into the show. Twelve of our students participated and all were recognized at the reception by receiving a Congressional Art Certificate.
Julia Irvin was selected as the overall winner. Her work will hang in the Cannon Tunnel that leads to our nation’s Capitol in Washington DC. She and her family will be invited to a reception in their honor in Washington, DC in June to see her work on display in the tunnel along with other top winners from around the country.
Congratulations to Julia as the top winner for this year’s Congressional Art Show! Congratulations to all of our students chosen to participate in this year’s show. Congressman Pitts’ mentioned that he had received many compliments from residents of Garden Spot Village on the high quality of art in this year’s exhibit.
