2015 Congressional Art Competition

 
 

Congratulations to the winner of this year's Congressional Art Competition for North Carolina’s Sixth District, Skyler Paschall from Orange High School. Paschall's submission, a self-portrait, was selected by locally renowned artist, William Mangum, from among dozens of entries from area high school students. The portrait will hang in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. for one year. “I'd like to thank all of the students for participating in this year's competition, and I’m pleased to congratulate Orange High School’s Skyler Paschall for her winning entry,” said Walker. “I am amazed by all the talented young artists of the Sixth District, and we are so blessed to have artist William Mangum judge this great competition. I want to thank him for his wonderful support and know that his counsel is an invaluable resource for all the artists that attended. I look forward to seeing Skyler’s work displayed at the U.S. Capitol and am also honored to showcase the talented work of Jillian Owens and Marcie Laird, the second and third place winners, in my D.C. office."
