Rep. David Trone Announces Congressional Art Competition Winners From Maryland’s Sixth District

GAITHERSBURG — Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) announced the winners of the Congressional Art Competition for Maryland’s Sixth District. Each year, the House of Representatives hosts the competition for high school students across the country to recognize young, talented artists. The winner’s art piece is hung up in the hall of the Capitol building and is put on display for all staff, tourists, and visitors.  

“We have so many talented young artists in Maryland and all of the submissions were beautiful, thought-provoking, and topical,” said Congressman David Trone. “This year’s winner was chosen through public voting on Facebook. Ria Bansal of Northwest High School received the most votes for her piece “Creativity.” Congratulations to Ria, our other winners, and all students who submitted their artwork for their impressive achievements!”
