Several New Braunfels High School students were recently recognized by Texas Congressmen for their art submissions in Congressional Art Competitions.

Kate Windrow recognized by Districts 21 and 35

Senior Kate Windrow has been recognized for her exceptional art in Congressman Greg Casar’s District 35  and Congressman Chip Roy’s District 21 Congressional Art Contests.

Her art piece is on its way to the US Capitol where it will be displayed for the next year. She will also be able to travel to Washington D.C. through Congressman Roy’s office to see her work displayed.

Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
