May 14, 2019 — Ten Mound Westonka High School artists represented their school at the 2019 3rd Congressional District Art Competition in April. U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips invited each high school in the district to select 10 artworks to be included in this prestigious exhibit. A panel of guest jurors selected the top five artworks from over 100 submissions.

MWHS students whose artwork was included in the exhibit were seniors Taylor Hummelsund, Connor Madsen and Kade Retterath; juniors Ivy Anderson, Trinity Bielke, Grace Hanson, Emilene Loehr and Monique LaCroix; and sophomores Charlie Bledsoe and Maya Jable. Teachers, artists and their families gathered for a reception with Phillips on April 24 at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts.

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to recognize and encourage artistic talent in each congressional district and the nation. More than 650,000 high school students have participated over three decades.

Congratulations to these talented artists!
