OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - In a March 22 story about the Congressional District Art Competition, The Associated Press, based on information provided by Congressman Lee Terry’s office, misidentified the school that Emily Reece attends and the title of her entry. Reece attends Westside High School, not Benson High School, and the title of her entry was “Walk Through the Park,” not “Walk Thru Park.”

A corrected version of the story is below:

Omaha teen wins congressional art contest

Benson High School student in Omaha named winner of Nebraska congressional art contest

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Congressman Lee Terry has announced that a Benson High School student has won the 2014 2nd Congressional District Art Competition.

The competition began in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982 and serves as an opportunity for congressional members to feature the artistic talents of high school students within their districts.

Ian Marcus, of Benson High School, received first-place honors for his entry titled “Liquid Dreaming.” The work will hang for the next year in the U.S. Capitol with those from winners in other congressional districts across the country.

Second place went to “Walk Through the Park,” by Emily Reece, who attends Westside High School. “Wisdom Glance,” by Giovanni Baarraza, of Benson High School, finished third.
