Albany - - Promoting young artists and encouraging more art in schools - that's the goal of a contest sponsored by 2nd District Congressman Sanford Bishop.
Congressman Bishop announced the winners of this year's Congressional Art Competition today. More than 100 students submitted their artwork in our area. The winner, Jessi Singletary from Brookwood High School, will have work her painting displayed at the U.S. Capitol for a year.
"That's a pretty high honor for me to accept. It's just a lot to take in as once so I gotta test the waters out with different competitions and just get used to it," says Singletary.
12th grader Nicole Palmerton of Tift County High School won 2nd place and 11th grader Devorius Kittles of Dougherty High School won 3rd.
