Congressional Art Competition

A Caprock High School student has been selected to represent the 13th Congressional District of Texas in the nationwide 2017 Congressional Art Competition. A drawing submitted by Haley Garber, daughter of Kevin and Suzanne Garber of Amarillo, will be displayed in the hallways of the United States Capitol for an entire year. 

The charcoal drawing of a horse, entitled “Becky,” was selected as the winning entry from the 13th District of Texas.

Winners of the competition are invited to Washington, D.C., for a special reception to honor the winners. Haley plans to attend the event this year and visit with my office while she is there. 

We had many impressive pieces of art submitted by students from across our part of Texas for this year’s Congressional Art Competition. Haley’s drawing demonstrates a great deal of artistic talent. I am proud to have it represent our district in the Capitol building for the next year.

The Congressional Art Competition is a national competition that selects one piece of artwork from each of the 435 U.S. congressional districts and territories for a year-long exhibit in Washington, D.C. The annual contest for high school students has taken place since 1982.

Below is a picture of Haley's drawing.
