Congressman Mick Mulvaney has announced this year's winner and additional awards for the 5th District of South Carolina.

This year's 1st Place prize goes to Jimmy Poluszek, a senior from Fort Mill High School; his art teacher is Ms. Jessica Calloway. The winning pieces from each district are shipped to Washington, DC to hang for 11 months in the Cannon Tunnel, and they are viewed by thousands of visitors as well as the Congressional members.

On June 24, a celebratory reception will be held in DC to honor the district winners. Southwest Airlines provides two tickets to each district winner.

This year our juror was Ms. Barbara Curry, a professional artist whose studio is located at the Center for the Arts in Rock Hill. To learn more about Barbara, visit her website at Unity Tree Arts.
