Anna Morris, of Baton Rouge, won the 6th District 2014 Congressional Art Contest, said U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge.
Morris is a junior at Christian Life Academy, and her piece is titled “Nduga Wawilia na Mfupa.”
“I want to congratulate Anna for winning the 2014 Congressional Art Contest and thank all who participated,” Cassidy said. “This contest highlights the creativity of high school students throughout the 6th District. I am proud to sponsor it.”
Morris’ work will hang in the United States Capitol rotunda for one year. She will be honored at a Washington reception with other Congressional Art Contest winners.
The second-place finisher was Paige Erno, with her work “Bare Beauty,” also a student at Christian Life Academy, and the third place-finisher was Christopher Vise, “The Art of Jazz,” Walker High School. The honorable mention winner was Dimi Johnson, “Are you sad or not?,” the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired.
Erno’s painting will hang in Cassidy’s Washington office, and the other artwork will be featured in his district offices.
Teachers of the students who participated include Renee Farrell, of Christian Life Academy; Karla Demars, of Walker High School; and Anna Gayle, of the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired. Mark Biletnikoff, owner of N The Art Space, judged the contest.
