Union City High School junior Sami Mobley has been chosen as the winner of the 2010 Congressional Art Competition.
The winning artwork, a mixed media-acrylic painting entitled “Enter Galactic,” will be entered in district judging to be held April 30.
In addition to the county winner, recognition was given to the second-place winner, Obion County Central High School junior Hope Montgomery, for her mixed media drawing, “There is Hope.” Third-place was awarded to OCCHS senior Refugio Flores for his acrylic, “Self-Portrait.” Honorable mention recognition went to OCCHS senior Crystal Rerick for her prismacolor, “Butterflies.”
“We are very proud of all the fine young artists who entered this competition and each of them are to be commended for their hard work and dedication,” Tanner said.
The artworks of the county winners will be judged in the district competition April 30 at the Carnegie Center for Arts & History in Jackson. The district winner’s artwork will hang for one year in a corridor leading to the U.S. Capitol with the works of winners from all over the nation.
