Press Release

Washington, DC– Congressman David Price (NC-04) announced the winners of the Fourth District Congressional Art Competition, which brings together talented high school artists from across the district, at a reception last night in Raleigh.

Rachel Geoffrion of C.E. Jordan High School in Durham took first place in the competition with her photograph, “Liminality”. C.E. Jordan photography teacher Erin Ryan mentored Geoffrion.

“As an enthusiastic supporter of arts education, I was pleased to see so many excellent entries in this year’s Art Competition,” Congressman Price said. “The truly impressive quality of the drawings, paintings, and photographs submitted by these students reflects their talent and hard work and the commitment of their teachers.”

Later this year, Art Competition winners from around the country will come to Washington for the formal awards ceremony and the unveiling of the exhibit featuring their work. The winning entries will hang in the U.S. Capitol for one year. Art from other students placing in the competition will be displayed in Congressman Price’s Washington office and district offices.
