(PITTSBURGH, PA) – Today, Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) announced that recent Hampton Township High School graduate Katelyn Januck is the winner of the 2020 Congressional Art Competition for Pennsylvania's 17th District for her pencil drawing "Class of…". Januck is enrolled to attend The Savannah College of Art and Design this fall.

"Although the pandemic wasn't a theme, it certainly shows through in the students' artwork, and Katelyn's drawing reflects what a lot of students must be feeling during this time," said Lamb. "I look forward to this artwork being on display in the Capitol to represent the constituents of PA-17."

Lamb received 22 art submissions for the contest, including oil paintings, photographs and drawings from schools across PA-17.

A panel of judges, including local artists and educators, selected Januck's "Class of…," which will be hung in the U.S. Capitol along with the winning entries from other congressional districts nationwide. Additionally, the panel selected the following second, third and fourth and place-winning entries that will be displayed for one year in Lamb's Mt. Lebanon, Penn Hills and Beaver County district offices respectively:

  • 2nd Place: Kaleigh Penrod (Westinghouse Arts Academy Charter School) "Rebirth"
  • 3rd Place: Kayla Karmanos (Pine Richland High School) "False Reality"
  • 4th Place: Alaina Peccon (Blackhawk High School) "Self Portrait"
