Students from across the 10th Congressional District were invited to submit original artwork for the 2016 Congressional Art Competition and two Turlock students had their pieces chosen for the top three.

Pitman High School sophomore Nairobi Mellow took first place with her painting titled "Those That Stomp." Her painting will be displayed in Washington D.C. for one year and she will also be flown out the Capital to be part of the Walk of Fame reception.

Turlock Christian's Gyuha Hwang took third place and Riverbank student Andres Mora took second.

All 23 art contest submissions can be found on Denham's Facebook page.
