Lakewood, Colo. — Today U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) announced the winning artwork from Colorado’s 7th Congressional District in the 2020 Congressional Art Competition.

Perlmutter welcomed submissions from 20 students from six different high schools in the district – Lakewood High School, Golden High School, Adams City High School, D’Evelyn High School, Penn Foster Online High School and Northglenn High School.

To all the participants, keep up the good work!”
