Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (Florida-02) announced Friday that Elizabeth Baggett of Marianna High School as the winner of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition for the Second Congressional District of Florida.

Elizabeth’s artwork, titled “Eyes of Our Youth,” is a beautiful, detailed pencil-drawn portrait of a young girl.

“We had an exceptional selection of entries from young artists throughout Florida’s Second Congressional District this year. The 2022 winning piece could not be timelier as we reflect on how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted children nationwide. It also serves as a reminder that we must focus on the legacy we leave behind for generations to come,” said Congressman Dunn. “I look forward to seeing Elizabeth’s artwork hanging in the Capitol for visitors from across the country to see. Thank you to all our participants for your awe-inspiring contributions and our judges for choosing this year’s winners.”

Congressman Dunn’s office received nearly 30 submissions from across the district, and local art professionals judged the competition. Anna Barber of Marianna High School won second place for her watercolor and pastel piece titled “Let Sun Shine In.” Jake Wooley of Suwannee High School won third place with his photograph titled “Suffocated.”
