From an Everett Public Schools news release.

Skylar Barrett, a Jackson High School senior, was honored April 27, 2015, at the Washington State 1st Congressional District Art Contest.

Barrett received her Congressional Certificate of Special Recognition after choosing to take part in an optional project in Mr. Trueit’s U.S. government class at Jackson High School.

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 as a way for members of Congress to encourage and recognize artistic talents of their constituents.

Since then over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nation-wide competition.
