Six Darlington High School students are participating in the Congressional Art Competition & Display, on view at a public gallery located at Goodman South Madison Library in Madison from April 27-May 3.
Participating students include: Edgar Mendez, Shauna Volkening, Meghan Weber, Alex Lyne, Kaitlyn Reichling, and Lauren Weber.
The Congressional Art Competition is an annual celebration of the artistic talent of students in south central Wisconsin. It is important to foster and celebrate the creative drive of high school youth, and the competition gives a positive outlet for students to share their talent with their community.
On Monday, May 4 there will be a reception celebrating the artistic talent of all students involved in the competition and display. Students will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with Congressman Pocan. Pocan will also announce the top four pieces selected by a judging panel of art community members from throughout the district.
As with prior years, one grand prize winner will receive the honor of having their artwork put on display in the nation’s capital for an entire year. Additionally, the winner will receive a trip to Washington D.C. to participate in a national reception, and to see their work in the capitol first-hand.
