U.S. Rep. McSally to Announce Art Competition Winners
TUCSON – U.S. Representative Martha McSally will announce the winners of her third annual Congressional Art Competition at a reception on Saturday, May 20 at the UA Tech Park. Rep. McSally will reveal the overall winner, whose artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol.
“We received many truly remarkable pieces of art, showing what talented and promising young artists we have in Southern Arizona,” said Rep. McSally. “This year is unique because Southern Arizonans selected one of the winners that will be honored. I look forward to recognizing all the winners on Saturday as well as all the artists who participated for their hard work.”
Students from 12 high schools across Southern Arizona submitted 66 art pieces in this year’s competition, and a panel of independent judges selected the winner. Rep. McSally will also announce two runner-ups, whose artwork will be displayed in the Tucson and Sierra Vista district offices.
This year, Rep. McSally will also announce the winner of a new award, the “People’s Choice” award, selected by constituents who voted for their favorite submission on Rep. McSally’s Facebook page. This winner’s art work will be displayed in her office in Washington, DC.
