WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Mike Michaud announced today that Jessica Chen, a senior at Bangor High School, was selected as the winner of this year's Congressional Art Competition for Maine's Second District.

Jessica's winning art piece - "Floating." Jessica Chen's winning art piece will be displayed in U.S. Capitol

The Congressional Art Competition offers a chance for one high school student from participating districts from around the country to have their art work hung in the halls of the U.S. Capitol. In Maine, the winners are chosen by jurors selected by the Maine Arts Commission, and flown down to Washington, courtesy of competition sponsors, to participate in an opening ceremony. Prior to the opening ceremony, Maine's winners and runners-up will be invited to the Blaine House next month for a reception in their honor.

"This year we had another impressive batch of submissions from some of Maine's talented students," said Michaud. "Congratulations to Jessica and all of the runners-up for their outstanding work. I can't help but smile with pride every time I walk into the Capitol and pass the artwork on display from our district."

The Congressional Art Competition was started in 1982 with the goal of providing more encouragement and recognition for the hard work and artistic abilities of our country's young people. Since that time, more than 700,000 students have participated.

Jessica Chen's art teacher at Bangor High School was Kal Elmore. The runners-up and honorable mentions also all hail from Bangor High. Siblings Abbey and Morgan Kidder received first and second runner-up, respectively; while Nick Fournier and Shirley Yuen received honorable mentions.
