TROY, Mich. - Today, U.S. Representative Dave Trott (MI-11) visited 3rd graders from Randolph Elementary School in Livonia, Michigan to recognize them as the first class to participate in Rep. Trott's first annual "Color my Capitol" program.

"Since 2014, I have sponsored a district-wide high school art competition to recognize the artistic talents of so many high school artists across Michigan's 11th District. However, I know many artists get their start long before high school, learning to expand their imaginations and foster their creativity in classrooms across our community," said Rep. Trott after his visit.

"This year, in an effort to recognize artists of all ages, I was happy to announce the first annual 'Color my Capitol' program to recognize Southeast Michigan's youngest artists, like those in Ms. Hillard's 3rd grade class, right here in Livonia. It is an honor to have their beautiful artwork displayed in my Troy district office for all of those who visit to enjoy." 

"Color my Capitol" is a program for 3rd graders across Michigan's 11th Congressional District during which participants color the nation's Capitol building in Washington, D.C. All artwork submitted is displayed in Rep. Trott's congressional district office in Troy, Michigan.
