LHS’s Julia Reed wins 2nd Congressional District art competition

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Ludington High School junior Julia Reed has won the 2023 Congressional Art Competition for Michigan’s Second Congressional District with her watercolor painting, Monarchs on a Lilac Branch. Her art will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year where it will be seen by people from across the country and around the world.

“Congratulations to Julia on her talent as an artist and painting a wonderful piece of art,” said Congressman John Moolenaar. “Her painting will represent our district well as it is displayed in the Capitol alongside art from across the country. I also want to thank all the students who participated in this year’s Congressional Art Competition for showing off their skills and entering some incredible art,”

Kadence Keegstra, of Ludington High School, and Nevada Draper, a home school student from Hesperia, were named regional winners for their artwork. Their artwork will be displayed in Congressman Moolenaar’s district offices.

The Congressional Art Competition is a yearly competition that takes place throughout the country where high school students create original artwork. More information on how to get involved can be found here.
