SKIATOOK, Okla. (AP) - A Skiatook High School senior has won an art competition that will see her work displayed at the U.S. Capitol.

U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas announced Tuesday that Ashley Ghazal won his district’s 2014 Congressional Art Competition.

Ghazal’s charcoal and chalk piece, titled “Her Eyes,” will be displayed for a year in the corridor tunnel leading to the Capitol, along with the winning entries from other congressional districts. Ghazal also gets free airfare to participate in the competition’s ribbon-cutting ceremony in Washington this summer.

Cheyenne resident Hadley Smith won second place and her artwork will be displayed in Lucas’ district office in Yukon.

Yukon resident Hannah Shivers won Lucas’ Facebook “fan favorite” competition with her acrylic painting and will receive a U.S. flag flown over the Capitol in her honor.
