Carolina Segoviano, a senior at Hanks High School, was selected as the winner of the 2024 Congressional Art Competition for her artwork “Una Para Ti, Una Para Mi.” The piece will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol building for one year.

Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (TX-16) announced the winners at a showcase and reception she hosted in El Paso.

“It is my pleasure to congratulate Carolina and all the aspiring young artists for enriching the 2024 Congressional Art Competition with their talent, creativity, and skills,” said Congresswoman Escobar. “I would like to thank the judges, teachers, family members, and of course, the artists for their dedication to the arts and participation in this competition. I cannot wait to see Carolina again in DC and admire her artwork in our Capitol.”

In addition, Charlize Santini and Neylan Cacheuz from Bel Air High, Renata Hernandez and Nqaining Tan Chen from Eastwood High School, and Elizabeth Maldonado from Parkland High School, received Honorable Mention.

Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district.  This year, Congresswoman Escobar’s office had 111 pieces of art from 18 different high schools for the competition.
