Congressman Patrick McHenry has announced Karina Jones as the winner of the Tenth District's 2019 Congressional Art Competition. A panel of judges selected Karina's work, "Mabel", as the winner of this year's competition. Karina is a rising senior at Gaston Christian School where she studies art under teacher Jill Overton.

On Monday (June 24th) Karina attended the Congressional Art Competition ribbon-cutting ceremony at the US Capitol. Congressman McHenry was honored to recognize Karina and her art work, "Mabel," in his office.

"Every year I am impressed with the art work of the many talented students who call the Tenth District home," said McHenry. "Congratulations to Karina on being chosen as this year’s winner. I look forward to seeing her artwork displayed in the Capitol representing the Tenth District throughout the next year.”

Karina's artwork will be prominently displayed in the US Capitol in Washington alongside pieces from each of the Congressional districts across the country. By winning the Tenth District's competition, she will be eligible for a scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design or Tennessee Wesleyan College. Karina also won a free trip to Washington to attend the Congressional Art Competition ribbon-cutting ceremony and have the opportunity to view her artwork on display.

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982, and, since then, over 650,000 high school students have participated in this nationwide event enabling high school students to showcase their artistic ability.

The Congressional Art Competition is a privately-funded competition with support from Southwest Airlines and the Congressional Institute.
