“Congratulations to Tatum Condrey and all of the talented students who submitted their artwork for this competition,” Rep. Pete Olson said. “This competition showcases the talented artists from across the nation, showcasing their unique experiences and perspectives. I’m excited to have Tatum’s piece represent the 22nd District of Texas and be on display for the millions of people who visit the Capitol throughout the year. I would also like to congratulate Lucy Chen and Nerissa Xia Geng for placing in the top three, and thank all of the incredible students who participated in this year’s competition.”
