Fond du Lac congressman Tom Petri will attend a reception to honor the participants of the annual Sixth District Art Competition for High School Students in Fond du Lac Saturday. The reception, which includes an exhibit of all the artwork submitted to this year's competition, will take place at the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and is open to the public. The winners of the competition will be announced by Rep. Petri during the event. The Congressional Art Competition is voluntarily sponsored by Members of Congress through competitions held in their congressional districts and affords high school
students the opportunity to showcase their talents in Washington, D.C. The first-place artwork chosen in each congressional district will be sent to Washington to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. Artwork will be on display at THELMA through May 4.
