Hoyer Announces 2018 Fifth District Congressional Art Competition Winner

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) today welcomed Fatemeh Hosseini to the U.S. Capitol to congratulate her on winning the 2018 Congressional District High School Arts Competition.  Fatemeh met with Congressman Hoyer and participated in events on Capitol Hill honoring high school students from across the country who submitted art to the annual competition. 

“Fatemeh is one of the very bright young artists in our country, and we are fortunate to have talented students like her throughout the Fifth District,” said Congressman Hoyer. “All of the students who participated in the Fifth District competition displayed great vision and skill, and I am as proud of them as I am of Fatemeh.  The judges were very impressed with the level of artistic technique and creativity of all of the entrants. ”

“I look forward to seeing Fatemeh’s piece displayed in the Capitol complex along with the other works of art from winners around the country,” continued Congressman Hoyer. “I hope Fifth District students with an interest in the visual arts will continue to participate in this wonderful competition.”

Fatemeh lives in Hyattsville, Maryland, and is entering her senior year at DuVal High School. Her artwork, titled “Children’s Blocks Still Life,” is a charcoal drawing of children’s blocks with various numbers and letters.

The Congressional Arts Competition provides Members of Congress with the opportunity to showcase the artistic talent of high school students in their districts.  First begun in 1982, the competition has involved hundreds of thousands of students, and the winners have their pieces hung in the Capitol complex for a year, to be seen my the many visitors from across the country who come to the Capitol and by Members of Congress every day.  Each year, Congressman Hoyer sends letters to all the high schools in the Fifth District announcing the Congressional District High School Arts Competition.  After all entries have been submitted, a panel of local judges from the education and business communities meet to determine the winner.
