Legacy student artists Catherine Keyes, Anna Dean, and Natalie Clark need your votes! These three have entered their original artwork in the 2018 Congressional Art Competition, a competition created in 1982 by the U.S. House of Representatives. This year, public, private and home-schooled high school students located in the 26th Congressional District were eligible to submit their artwork for judging. The Grand Prize for the competition is the display of the winning student's artwork for an entire year in the U.S. Capitol!

The general public is able to vote online for their favorite pieces to be named “Texas Choice” winner. This winner will proceed to the finals for a chance to win the Grand Prize. Cast your votes for our Legacy artists and give them the opportunity to compete for First Place! Voting is open through April 8.
