Back to Back: Ludington High School Student Wins Congressional Art Competition for Second Consecutive Year
Over the weekend, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) met with Second District Congressional Art Competition finalists at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum in Grand Haven. For an extraordinary second year in a row, Ludington High School student Ruby Henrickson was named the winner of the Congressional Art Competition for her piece entitled "Nostalgia."
"Congratulations to Ruby for winning her second consecutive Congressional Art Competition,” said Congressman Huizenga. “It is clear that Ruby has continued to hone her skills and crafted another incredible work of art. Ruby has been a great representative for young artists across West Michigan and I look forward to thousands of U.S. Capitol visitors viewing ‘Nostalgia’ first-hand."
This year’s runner up was Kayli Holmes from Fremont High School. Kayli’s piece “Reflecting on Resonance” will hang in Congressman Huizenga’s Grandville Office.
Allyson Richards, a student at Calvary Christian in Fruitport, took third place with her work “Through the Mind of the Veteran.” Allyson’s work will also be displayed in Congressman Huizenga’s Office in Grandville.
