Roby Congratulates 2018 Congressional Art Competition Winner
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) today congratulated Montgomery student Christine Choi upon being selected as the winner of the 2018 Congressional Art Competition in Alabama’s Second District.
Christine is currently a junior at Saint James School. Her winning piece, titled “Silly,” was created using linoleum prints with varying values of ink. It will be displayed in the United States Capitol building for one year.
“We have so many talented students throughout our district, and I am thrilled to congratulate Christine for this outstanding achievement,” Representative Roby said. “The annual Congressional Art Competition celebrates the importance of art and provides a great opportunity for students in our community to showcase their talents. I am pleased to join Christine’s family and friends in recognizing this fantastic honor, and I look forward to seeing her work displayed in the United States Capitol.”
Every spring since 1982, members of Congress have sponsored this high school art competition in their respective districts. All entries must be original in concept, design, and execution. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have participated in this nationwide competition.
