Congratulations are going out to second-time
Congressional Arts Competition winner Delney Carlson, a senior at the St. Croix Educational Complex.
The competition, entitled An Artistic Discovery, is sponsored annually by the Delegate Donna Christian Christensen.
Carlson's entry, "Crucian Geckos of the 21st Century" received top honors over 52 entries from high school students throughout the territory. He also submitted a winning piece last year entitled "Cruzan Creatures."
"I would once again like to congratulate Delney and his teacher John Jones, and our second and third place winners, Abdul Henry and Jeffrey Renzende, both of St. Croix Central High School, for their outstanding entries and commend all of the students who participated in this contest," Christensen said. "It is always refreshing to emphasize the positives in our community and the
Congressional Arts competition is one way to do so. I am pleased to provide our youth with an outlet and an opportunity to showcase their artistic ability because we have an abundance of talent right here in our schools."
The annual congressional competition showcases work from students across the
United States. National winners are honored in a ceremony on Capitol Hill along with placement of the winning selection in a display in the Cannon House Office Building.
