Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger, announced the local student winners of this year’s Congressional Art Competition. This year Rep. Graves hosted a modified competition for high school students in the 14th Congressional District due to the ongoing public health crisis, and all of the student art was submitted digitally.
Local judges, chosen by the Rome Area Council of the Arts, chose winners for the top three places, along with two honorable mentions. Nearly 200 local residents voted online for the People’s Choice Award.
Rising senior Elle Smith won second place with her painting “Pink Fan Self Portrait.”
