The winning piece of artwork will be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel to the U.S. Capitol, along with the winners from the other congressional districts across the country. 

“Each year I continue to be impressed by the incredibly talented students that hail from Michigan’s 7th District. I’m excited to see the submissions for this year’s art competition and look forward to putting their creative abilities on display for a national audience,” said Congressman Walberg.
