Mill Creek student’s art to display at U.S. Capitol

Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) recently announced that the winner of the 2020 Congressional Art Competition is Isabella Floyd, a rising senior at Mill Creek High School in Hoschton. Floyd submitted a photograph, entitled “Inspiration,” which will hang for one year in the U.S. Capitol. Additionally, Congressman Hice congratulated Marnie Couch, whose mixed media artwork, entitled “American Soldier,” placed second in the competition. Couch, a rising senior at George Walton Academy in Monroe, will have her artwork displayed throughout the summer in Hice’s downtown Monroe office. “Congratulations to Isabella and Marnie and all the students who put their artistic abilities on display for the public to enjoy,” said Congressman Hice. “Without fail, I’m amazed each year by the mix of creativity, intricate details, and vibrant colors that our students include in their talented submissions. Although we were unable gather in person, I am more than pleased with the quality of entries we received and am glad we were able to host this year’s annual competition on an online platform.” Twenty-four high school students from the 10th Congressional District participated in the 2020 Congressional Art Competition.
