Washington, DC- Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today congratulated the TX-22 winners of this year’s Congressional Art Competition. The first place winner is Hannah Li from William D.

The second, third and fourth place winners will have their artwork on display in Olson’s Texas and Washington offices.
“Congratulations to Hannah Li and all of the talented students who submitted their artwork for this competition,” Rep. Pete Olson said. “The Congressional Art Competition showcases the unique experiences and perspectives of talented artists from across the nation. I’m thrilled to have Hannah’s work to represent the 22nd District of Texas for the millions of people who visit the Capitol each year. I would also like to congratulate Mya Stalnaker, Chelsea Tang and Phuongthy Tran for placing in the top four, and thank all of the incredible students who participated in this year’s competition.”
