Today, U.S. Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler announced the winners of Southwest Washington’s Congressional Art Competition. The contest’s first prize winner, Megan Sheets of Cedar Tree Classical Christian School, is invited to travel to Washington, D.C. in June when her artwork entitled “Paia” will be hung in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year. 

Jaime’s office hosted a Congressional Art Competition Reception on Friday, May 4 where the students showcased their artwork at Clark County Historical Museum. 

“The level of talent these artists displayed in this year’s art competition was terrific,” said Jaime. “As always, we had some great submissions, which made it all the more difficult to choose a winner. I’m proud to hang Megan’s beautiful flowers in the Capitol for all to enjoy!”
