WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On June 27, U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar announced Venancia Armijo, from East Central High School in San Antonio, as the winner of the 2013 Congressional Art Competition. Venancia’s winning charcoal self-portrait, titled “Reading,” will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol for a year.

Venancia, a sophomore in high school, discovered her love for drawing at a young age and described her passion for reading as her ultimate inspiration. She, along with fellow award recipients from various districts, participated at the annual awards reception on June 26 in Washington, D.C. This was Venancia’s first time visiting the nation’s capitol, where she enjoyed sightseeing and meeting the fellow recipients. The Congressional Art Competition is held each spring and is sponsored by members of Congress. One winner from each district is chosen every year. Since its inception in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated in the competition.
