Comstock Announces Winner of 2017 Congressional Art Competition
Sterling, Virginia – On April 24th, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock hosted the 2017 10th Congressional District Art Competition where at the event she announced that Riverside High School Junior Rebecca Ashley won this year’s Best in Show award. The reception took place at The George Washington University Virginia Science & Technology Campus. The competition, which was open to all high school students who reside in the 10th Congressional District, received art from every region of the District. An independent panel judged each piece of art.
“Each year I am impressed by the breadth of artistic talent presented by students in the 10th District. I am pleased to announce that junior, Rebecca Ashley, from Riverside High School won Best in Show. Rebecca entered two pieces of art in this year’s competition and actually received 3rd place in another category for her second piece of art. She was accompanied last night by her art teacher, Augusta Dadiego, and her supportive mother. Rebecca’s art will hang in the U.S Capitol for the next year. I appreciate the hard work of our supportive teachers and parents for fostering a creative passion in their students and children and helped make this year’s Congressional Art Competition such a success. I also thank our judges and students for all of their hard work this year.”
