All submitted art was featured in a local public exhibition held at North Texas Performing Arts in Plano.  It can also be viewed as part of an online exhibition on Congressman Taylor’s website.

Allen High School’s Isabella Vinas took first place honors for her work “Lawman’s Eye ‘Valentino.’”  Other works receiving honorable mentions included “Self Portrait in a Purple Dress” by McKinney Boyd’s Annika Dundon; “Journey of Discovery” by Richelle Kim of Trinity Christian Academy; “Light Prevails in a World of Darkness” by Jathin Pranav Singaraju of Independence High School; and Horse and Nails by  Melissa High School’s Ava Neu.

“Collin County is home to countless young leaders who choose to give of their time and talent by participating annually in the Congressional Art Competition,” Taylor said in a statement announcing the winners. “This year’s impressive submissions serve to remind us of how the arts promote expression and creativity while bringing our community together. It is with gratitude that I thank this year’s participating students and congratulate our winning artists.”
