Tahoma High student wins second place in Congressional Art Competition

Christian Saez from Tahoma High School was announced as the second place winner in the annual Congressional Art Competition.

Chelsie Conroy, a student at Bonney Lake High School, won the 8th District competition for her painting titled “Fles”. Her work was chosen at a reception held at the Green River Community College.

“I am pleased every year to see so many students participate in this competition,” said Congressman Dave Reichert in a statement. “Their talent blows me away each and every time and I don’t know how our panel of judges is able to come to a decision. I thank them for their efforts and I am proud to congratulate Chelsie today and bring her artwork back with me to Washington, D.C.”

Third place went to Gerda Szoboszlai from Lindbergh High School.

Chelsie’s winning painting will be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel in the U.S. Capitol beginning in June for a full calendar year.
