Spokane student traveled to D.C. with award-winning painting

Emily Harris, a recent graduate from East Valley High School, traveled with her painting “My Childhood” to Washington, D.C. in mid June. On Wednesday, about 450 Congressional Art Award winners around the country had their pictures taken on the steps of the U.S Capitol. During the trip, she and her family also met with the Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash, and visited inside the Capitol. Her artwork will hang in the Cannon Tunnel for one year.
