A national event to encourage artistic talent, the competition has drawn more than 650,000 U.S. high school students since its inception in 1982. Wilson is pictured with more than 40 of the 135 students who submitted artwork, including District 24 winner Weeclef Archange from Design and Architecture Senior High School. He receives two airline tickets to Washington D.C. for a reception and installation ceremony on June 25, and his artwork will be display in the Cannon Tunnel, at the U.S. Capitol, for an entire year.
