Jeffersonville, IN — Over the course of the last month, Representative Trey Hollingsworth asked high school students from across Indiana's 9th District to submit artwork for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition. Over 40 submissions were received from all corners of the District and subsequently judged by local artists, photographers, elected officials, and representatives from the congressional office. Overall scoring also took into account constituent input through Facebook "Likes." Once judging was completed, the following pieces of art were selected as the 2017 winners for Indiana's 9th District:

  • Grand Prize Winner — "A Look Into My Life" by Jenna Townsend from Floyd County
    • This piece of artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year
  • Runner-Up "Weathered Indiana Trailer" by Kelsey Humphrey from Floyd County
    • This piece of artwork will be displayed in the Washington, D.C. office for the next year
  • Third Place "Couch Bot" by Gavin Livingston from Washington County
    • This piece of artwork will be displayed in the Jeffersonville office for the next year
  • Honorable Mention "Farm Life" by Shantanna Argueta from Floyd County
    • This piece of artwork will be displayed in the Greenwood office for the next year

"All of the artwork from the extremely talented students of Indiana's 9th District was beautiful and well-crafted," said Rep. Trey Hollingsworth. "I am excited to display these four submissions for the next year where they can be enjoyed by visitors from across the District and the country."
