Congratulations to Jane Hallinan of Altoona, the the winner of the 2009 Congressional Art Competition for the 9th District of Pennsylvania.
This morning, Congressman Shuster met with Jane Hallinan and her family in his Washington office to congratulate her on winning the Congressional Art Competition for the 9th Congressional District.
Jane won for her mixed media collage entitled "Baker Mansion Blooms." Her artwork will proudly represent the 9th District when all of the contest winners from across the country have their work showcased in the Capitol complex beginning this month. Jane's collage will hang in the Capitol complex for a year where it will be seen by thousands of tourists, staff and Members of Congress.
Jane is a senior at Altoona Area High School and she will study interior design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the fall.
