On Saturday, U.S. Representative Baron Hill announced the three area high school students whose artwork was selected as the winning entries in the Ninth District’s annual Congressional Art Competition at an event held at Indiana University Southeast’s Ogle Center.  In total, more than 90 students from 11 schools submitted entries.


The winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges.

Milan High School student Jeremy Allen was awarded first place for his work “Momento Man.”  His artwork will be displayed for one year as part of a national exhibit in the Cannon Corridor of the U.S. Capitol building.  He also received two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C., to attend the national reception and ribbon cutting ceremony that will take place in June.

Second and third prizes were awarded to Clarissa Bryant of New Albany High School for her piece, “Urbaba Marzo,” and Amber Schultz of Floyd Central High School for her work, “Come Home Safe,” respectively.

My heartfelt congratulations go to the winning students and their families,” Hill said.  “I am pleased to host the Congressional Art Competition.  It highlights the creativity of Southern Indiana’s young Hoosier artists, and provides a national platform for their artwork.  I’m honored to represent such gifted young people.”
