Rep. Tom Graves Announces Winners of 14th District Congressional Art Competition


Washington, Apr 25 -

Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) announced the winners of the annual 14th District Congressional Art Competition last night at a reception at the Historic Courthouse in Dallas. Mikayla Feltman, who attends Murray County High School, was awarded first place for her work “Odyssey.” Ms. Feltman’s work will be displayed in the Cannon House Office Building tunnel to the U.S. Capitol for one year along with first place artwork from each participating congressional district across the country.

“Northwest Georgia is full of talented young artists,” said Rep. Graves. “It’s always encouraging to see the amazing artwork these young people produce. I thank each one of them for participating in this year’s Congressional Art Competition. I also thank Mayor Austin and the City of Dallas for allowing us to use their space for the exhibit and reception, and Paulding County Fine Arts for facilitating the competition.”
