BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Donna Klein Jewish Academy) — Ashley Klein, a junior at Claire and Emanuel G. Rosenblatt High School at Donna Klein Jewish Academy, recently placed first in the Congressional Institute art competition in Congresswoman Lois Frankel’s district.

According to the Congressional Institute website, each spring, the organization sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.

Ashley’s painting, titled Late Afternoon, is part of a series of 12 canvases that she completed for her Advanced Placement art class portfolio this year. It was exhibited on Friday, May 5, 2017 in the Ocean breeze room at Old School Square in Delray Beach.
