WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Fairfield student’s art will hang in the U.S. capitol after winning the district competition in the Congressional Art Contest.
Amber Burroughs’ “Apples” is a colored pencil drawing. It won the People’s Choice Award in the competition and will be displayed for one year.
“Each year I am more and more impressed by the creativity, ingenuity, and talent of our local high school students. I send my congratulations to all of the young artists whose wonderful submissions made it a very close contest this year. I especially want to congratulate Amber and look forward to seeing her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol,” said Loebsack.
