MISHAWAKA, Ind. – A Penn High School student has been named the winner of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition for Indiana’s 2nd District, U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski announced today.

Sarah Krall’s winning work, “Bearden Collage,” will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year alongside other winners from across the country.

“Sarah’s winning artwork showcases her artistic skill and creative expression, and I can’t wait to see it displayed in our nation’s capital,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “Congratulations to Sarah on this exciting achievement! I want to thank each and every artist who participated in this year’s competition, and I encourage them to continue exploring their talents and sharing their creativity with others.”
