Indian Trail students win top awards at Congressional Art Competition
Two Indian Trail High School and Academy students won top awards in the 2019 Congressional Art Competition/Artistic Discovery Contest.
Kylee Kappers won first place with her 9”x12” ultra fine Sharpie stipple titled “Brave.” Jimena Murguia Espino tied for fourth place with her 8.5”x18” watercolor titled “In Deo Speramus.”
Kappers will be attending the ceremony in Washington D.C., where her artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year. The second, third, and fourth place winning artwork will be displayed in the First Congressional District offices.
Indian Trail Communication Academy students Angelica Gonzalez and Jack Tanner received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for their exceptional participation in the 2019 First District Congressional Art Competition.
Each spring, a nationwide high school arts competition is sponsored by the members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our Congressional District, and is open to all high school students in the district.
The exhibit in Washington will include the winning artwork from all participating districts from around the country.
