Today, Jaime Herrera Beutler announced the winners of Southwest Washington’s Congressional Art Competition. The contest’s top finisher – Christine Choi of Columbia River High School – is invited to travel to Washington, D.C. in June when her artwork “Unity” will be hung in the U.S. Capitol Building.

On Friday, May 19, from 6:00-7:00pm, Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler’s office will be hosting a Congressional Art Competition Showcase at Boomerang Coffee Shop in downtown Vancouver.
