CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Congresswoman Nancy Mace announced on Tuesday the winners of the 2021 Congressional High School Art Competition.

Rep. Mace said it’s an opportunity to show the talent of Lowcountry students.

Mace said. “Our office received so many incredible submissions from students across the district, making choosing a winner all the more difficult. Thank you to our amazing panel of judges—Mary Whyte, Lisa Gilyard-Rivers, Susan Klein, Adrianne Kirsch-Lively, and Sara Frankel—for their hard work in selecting our finalists. Congratulations to all the participants in this year’s competition!”
