Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) welcomed Zachary Binroth, the winner of the 2015 Congressional Art competition for the 7th District, to Washington, D.C. today. Zachary is a senior at Jackson High School and he received first place for his charcoal drawing entitled “Interference.” It features a woman who is spouting knowledge and a boy who struggles to remember everything he must learn.

Zachary is the son of Michael Binroth and Alma Moncivais-Binroth, and his art teacher at Jackson High School is Linda Jacobs. He will attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the fall. His winning artwork will be part of a yearlong display in the Cannon Tunnel to the U.S. Capitol along with other pieces from high school students around the country.

“Every year I am impressed with all the dedicated and creative students that call Michigan’s 7th District home. Congratulations to Zachary for winning this year’s competition and I’m confident with his talent and work ethic he has a bright future ahead,” said Congressman Walberg.

Second place was awarded to Matthew Hurst, a junior at Monroe High School, for his graphite drawing entitled, “Lending a Hand.” It is a series of many hands and arms supporting a group of people walking together holding hands. Matthew is the son of Matt and Michelle Hurst, and his art teacher at Monroe High School is Amy McBroom.

Congressman Walberg serves on the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chair of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee. In addition, he serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. For more information on Walberg’s work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
