OSWEGO, NY – Rep. Dan Maffei (D-NY) is encouraging local high school students to participate in this year’s Congressional Art Competition.
The winning artist from New York’s 24th Congressional District will have his or her artwork displayed at the U.S. Capitol for one year and will be recognized both in the district and at an awards ceremony in Washington, DC.
“Each day, members of Congress and thousands of visitors to the Capitol from across the country will pass by and admire the winning Central New York high school students’ artwork,” said Maffei. “I look forward to seeing the impressive artwork submissions from Central New York students this year and to welcoming the winning artist to our nation’s capital.”
Maffei’s office has contacted schools throughout the 24th Congressional District to encourage participation in this year’s competition.
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students in New York’s 24th Congressional District.
Submissions are due by April 26 and will be judged by a local panel of art professionals.
Artwork can be delivered to any one of Maffei’s district offices for submission to the contest.
