Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville, announced the 2019 Art Competition winners for Georgia’s 11th Congressional District at the Woodstock Public Library in Woodstock.
Rachel Liu, who attends The Westminster Schools, won first place for her entry entitled, “Back to My Roots: A Grandfather’s Gaze” in charcoal.
“The Congressional Art Competition is a great opportunity for students from across Georgia’s 11th Congressional District to compete to have their artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol,” Loudermilk said. “The artwork I saw at the Woodstock Library this year was nothing short of incredible, which is no surprise because each of the finalists were excellent students. I want to thank the 12 schools who participated from across the district, and the dozens of students who made this year’s competition one of the best.”
In the 2019 competition, a total of 41 entries were submitted from 12 schools across Georgia’s 11th Congressional District. The winning artwork was determined by the “People’s Choice” ballot box, which allowed constituents from the District to vote on their favorite piece of artwork on display.
Second place went to Alec Weeks of Creekview High School for “Land of the Free” in acrylic. Third place went to Abigail Bangura of Kennesaw Mountain High School for “A Child’s World” in colored pencil, acrylic paint, gel pen and black markers. Honorable mention was Vincent Zheng of Creekview High School for “Seraphic Guardian” in acrylic.
Rep. Loudermilk represents Georgia’s 11th Congressional District, which includes all of Bartow and Cherokee counties and portions of Cobb and Fulton counties. He may be reached at 202-225-2931 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
