DPS Student Wins Congressional High School Art “Best in Show”

Each year, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school art competition. Students participate by submitting entries to their representative’s office, where a panel of judges evaluate the entries.

Karen Santos, a High Tech Early College student, won “Best in Show” in the nationwide award by competing against public, private and charter high school students within Colorado’s 1st District.

Santos’ artwork will be on display in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. for the next year. As part of her award, Southwest Airlines provided her with two flights to the reception in June.

According to the U.S. House of Representatives website, since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
