Rokita Announces Brownsburg Student as Congressional Art Competition Winner

— U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita recently announced that Ashlyn Zufall, a Brownsburg High School senior, has been selected as the 4th District winner in the annual Congressional Art Competition for her chalk pastel drawing, “You Give Me Butterflies.”

“My office received some outstanding entries from talented students across the district, all of which showed the true creativity of our young Hoosier artists,” said Rokita. “I congratulate Ashlyn on her excellent work and look forward to seeing it on display in the Capitol building.”

Ashlyn, daughter of Troy and Anna Zufall of Brownsburg and a student of Brownsburg art teacher Lori Woodcock, was in “disbelief” when she was told the news of her win.

“Although you're hoping, you never really expect to win with all the people that submit their artwork into these contests. So when I found out that mine was chosen, I was at first in disbelief but of course ecstatic afterwards. It can be hard to convey your ideas through an illustration so knowing that I achieved that definitely makes me feel accomplished,” said Zufall.

The Congressional Art Competition, sponsored by the Congressional Institute, is an annual competition to recognize the artistic efforts of high school students from across the country. Student artists submit their work to their local members of Congress, and the work of one artist from each district is selected for display in the United States Capitol.

Zufall’s artwork is already en route to Washington for display in the United States Capitol. Zufall will visit her artwork at the Capitol and meet with Representative Rokita in late June.

The program is an annual competition conducted each year since 1982. According to the Congressional Institute, more than 650,000 artists have participated since the competition’s inception.
