Congressional District Art Competition,” said Aderholt. “The competition is a great opportunity for high school students in our area to showcase their talents and creativity. Alabama’s artists are among some of the best in the nation, making the decision to pick just one winner a challenging one. I am grateful that this decision is tasked to our wonderful selection committee and I look forward to seeing everyone’s great work later this spring.”
