Emily Duan, a student at Richard Montgomery High School, took first place in U.S. Rep. David Trone’s Congressional Art Competition in Maryland’s 6th District. Her piece was titled Reminiscence.
Dunn’s work was chosen through public voting on social media.
Isabel Acuna Marin from Albert Einstein High School took top honors in Maryland’s 8th District, which is represented by U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin. Her art piece was titled “Tia Mona.”
Both winning pieces will hang in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year, along with the winning artwork from every congressional district in the nation.
“Maryland is home to some of the most creative students in the nation, and their talent was put in the spotlight during this year’s Congressional Art Competition,” Trone said.
