Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) recently visited with the winner of the Third District Congressional Art Competition. Wyatt Radford, a student at Alva High School, was named this year’s winner for his photograph entitled “Cold Morning, Hot Cup”. He traveled to Washington last week with his family to accept the award.

“It was a pleasure to visit with Wyatt and his family to discuss his work and the inspiration for his contest submission,” said Congressman Lucas. “Each year, I’m impressed with the level of talent and creativity of students who participate in the Congressional Art Competition, and this year was no exception. Wyatt’s piece entitled ‘Cold Morning, Hot Cup’ is a tremendous reflection of our community and I’m proud to have his work represent Oklahoma’s Third District as it hangs in the U.S. Capitol for the next year. I look forward to seeing more of Wyatt’s photography and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”

Wyatt’s photography will be featured in the United States Capitol for the next year alongside winners from other congressional districts.
