Sean wins First Place for "Freedom Rider"

Dad is understandably proud.

"The Congressional Arts Competition, which gives young artists the chance to represent their congressional districts, celebrated its 32nd year this month. North Carolina’s Forth District Representative David Price — who represents Chapel Hill — saw a record 62 students submit work.

Sean Stickel, a homeschooled student from Chapel Hill, won first place with his artwork, “The Freedom Rider.” With this honor, Stickel won a scholarship to a summer arts program and his winning artwork will be displayed in an exhibit in the U.S. Capitol for one year.

Stickel’s piece is a watercolor painting of a motorcycle engine with reflections of red, white and blue stars and stripes."
