At a reception in Flint, Congressman Dan Kildee announced the winners of the Congressional Art Competition for Michigan’s Fifth Congressional District at a congratulatory reception at the Flint Institute of Arts. The event celebrated the artistic achievements of high school artists from around mid-Michigan as well as this year’s winner, Alyssa Minatel.

Congressman Kildee said “I’m continually amazed by the artistic talents of local students. Each year I am proud to host this competition to showcase the fine artwork and creativity of our next generation. The arts are a vital part of our community and allow young people to express themselves, promoting creative development and personal growth.”

A panel of competition judges selected Minatel’s work as this year’s winner. The Linden High School’s student winning entry, a work in graphite, is titled “Face Value.” As the winner, Minatel’s work will now go in display in the Cannon Tunnel to the U.S. Capitol alongside winners from other congressional districts. Minatel will also have the opportunity to visit Washington D.C. for a reception and ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Congressional Art Caucus and Kildee.

The runner-up, “Energy,” was submitted by Lauren Oullette of Garber High School. Kelly Hazell from Davison High School came in third with “Sand Lake.”
