Posted: Updated:
U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, II today announced Destiny Moss of Marianna High School as the winner of this year’s Congressional Art Competition for Florida’s Second Congressional District.

Destiny’s artwork, titled “Sylph Vision,” will be featured in the U.S. Capitol for the next year along with other contest winners from across the country.  Destiny will also receive a roundtrip ticket to Washington, D.C., to participate in the national reception.

“It is with great pleasure that I announce Destiny Moss as this year’s Congressional Art Competition winner,” said Southerland. “While there were many deserving submissions, Destiny’s stunning artwork will represent the people of North Florida proudly in the U.S. Capitol.  I extend my congratulations to Destiny and all the talented students who participated in the competition.”

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
