Leinaweaver will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception for the new display in June.

“The talent and dedication of these young artists never ceases to amaze me and I am proud that Elise’s work will hang in the Capitol for the next year, bringing a little more of the Fifth District back with me to Washington,” Congressman Josh Gottheimer said.
