Kentucky Ag Connection - 05/23/2022

Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) visited two Louisville high schools to announce the winners of his 2022 Congressional Art Competition. Assumption senior Anna Gardone has won the National Competition and Atherton High senior Heidi Anderson has won the online Community Choice Competition. Yarmuth made the announcements during surprise visits to both schools on Friday.

Gardone's painting, entitled Lemon Lime Lemon, was chosen by a panel of judges from the local arts community. It will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building's "Artistic Discovery" corridor in Washington, D.C. for one year.

Anderson's colored pencil self-portrait, entitled Vanity Lights, was the top choice among online voters on Yarmuth's congressional website. It will be displayed in Yarmuth's Louisville office for the remainder of this year.

"Our city has always had such a rich history in the arts and arts education, so it's no surprise to see the extraordinary talents of our young people and the caliber of work they submit for this competition," said Yarmuth. "I congratulate Anna and Heidi on earning top honors in this year's contest and I thank all of the students who participated. Louisville is home to so much creativity, and I'm glad this competition helps showcase younger artists here in our community."

Since 1982, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have hosted the annual Congressional Art Competition, a contest that enables high school students from throughout the nation to demonstrate their artistic talents before a global audience. Yarmuth's 2022 competition drew in more than 50 entries from local high school students across Kentucky's Third Congressional District. A gallery of all of this year's student entries can be found at
