Thayer Student Wins Congressional Art Competition

Congressman Jason Smith is pleased to announce Skyler Todd from Thayer High School as the winner of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition
 Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide art competition to recognize artistic talent in each Congressional district. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 students have participated nationwide.
This competition is a way to showcase the vast talent that exists in our Eighth Congressional District while allowing students to express themselves through creativity. The top 15 artists are recognized within the district at a reception where the Congressman announced Skyler Todd as the winner.
Todd will get a chance to travel to Washington, DC to be celebrated at an awards ceremony and view his artwork hanging in the US Capitol, where it will be displayed and viewed by thousands over the next year.
“Each year, I am in awe of the artistic ability of our high school students, and I am pleased to say that choosing a winner is a difficult task,” said Rep. Jason Smith. “Skyler’s art work will be displayed around the capitol with great Missouri pride.”
 Congressman Smith’s office accepted nearly 100 submissions from local high school artists.
