  • Davis Students Win in Congressional Art Competition

    Posted by Ari Vazquez on 5/23/2023

    Congratulations to Davis students Mia Dufault and Marlene Martine for securing the first and second places in the Congressional Art Competition held annually during the spring. This competition serves as a platform to acknowledge and foster artistic talent at a national level and within Washington's 4th District.


    Mia Dufault's winning entry, titled "A Pulse of America," is a portrayal of Mt. Rainier. She enthusiastically expressed, "It's very special to me that other people can also find meaning in the art piece, and it's really great to have something that I really enjoy be honored and recognized."

    As the 2023 winning artwork from our district's competition, Mia's piece will be on display in the U.S. Capitol for an entire year as well as showcased on the Congressional Art Competition page of House.gov, further amplifying its reach and recognition. Marlene Martine’s fruit still life was the second place winner and will be hanging in the congressional district office next year. 

    We are so proud of these students for sharing their talents and representing our district with success!
