PUNTA GORDA, FLA.—U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) named Julianna Ross, a student at Charlotte High School in Punta Gorda, Fla., as the winner of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition.

“Congratulations to Julianna on being selected as this year’s winner of the Congressional Art Competition,” Congressman Steube said. “Her piece of artwork portrays the 17th District quite well and I look forward to seeing it in the halls of Congress. Thank you to all the students who participated this year. We have great artistic talent in the 17th District!”

Olivia Harper, a student at Charlotte High School came in second place in the competition. Jacqueline Hawley, a student at Charlotte High School was named the third place winner.

Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

Students submit entries to their Representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. The first-place winner is given the opportunity to display their artwork at the United States Capitol for one year.
