BOWLING GREEN, OH – Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) announced Bella Brandstatter, a student at Ottawa Hills High School, as the winner of Ohio’s Fifth District 2018 Congressional Art Competition at an event on Saturday in Perrysburg Township.
In a ceremony at Owens Community College, Latta also announced that pieces by Audrey Boes, Samantha Greenhill, and Katie Veenstra were Honorable Mentions. The winning artwork, Rosie will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Tunnel for one year. The three Honorable Mention pieces will be displayed in each of Latta’s district offices.
“The high quality of the artwork submitted by the students this year made it a very difficult decision for our judges,” said Latta. “Congratulations to Bella on winning the Grand Prize — Rosie will be a welcome addition to the Capitol this year. The art competition fully displays the tremendous talent that young people in Northwest and West Central Ohio possess, and it was a joy to see so many family and friends attend this ceremony on Saturday in support of these students.”
