Once a year, the Congressional Institute run an art competition for high-school students, offering a chance for their works to be put on display at the United States Capitol for an entire year. Students who submit the art will be up for the chance to win the honor, and this year Centennial High School student Tiona Cordova won the top spot with a painting of Kendrick Lamar entitled Utmost Appreciation.

Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton announced the winner on his Twitter and Instagram, sharing a picture of the winning painting. Cordova will also be invited to a ceremony at Washington D.C. later this year, where she will be honored. Kendrick Lamar will set out on a tour in support of his excellent new album DAMN. this July, with a stop in Washington on July 21. For more information on Kendrick's upcoming tour, which features support from Travis Scott and D.R.A.M., see here.
