NEISD student artist wins Congressional Art Award

Churchill High School graduate Kyle Klose has been recognized for winning the Congressional Art Award for the 21st District of Texas, where Chip Roy is Congressman. 

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. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 700,000 high school students have participated. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized in their home district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC.

Klose's art will remain on display for one year at the U.S. Capitol. He also earned a $3,000 scholarship from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) for his winning Congressional artwork. He will be attending SCAD this fall.

Congratulations to Kyle Klose and to his teacher Elise Johnson! If you are in Washington, D.C. this summer you will find his artwork hanging in the Capitol Hill tunnel gallery.
