An Artistic Discovery: The 2009 Congressional Art Competition

Maine’s winners of the 2009 Congressional Art Competition will be honored at a reception in Washington, D. C. on June 24. Both Suki Nesvig from Portland’s Waynflete School (1st Congressional District winner), and Michele Jaffarian from Rangeley Lakes Regional High School (2nd Congressional District winner), will meet their representatives in the nation’s Capitol where their winning artwork will be displayed as part of a year long exhibition.

Both Nevsig and Jaffarian received complimentary airline tickets for them and their families to travel to Washington to be part of the ribbon cutting ceremony that will formally open the show.
