Image for Congresswoman Congratulates Congressional Art Competition Winners

Jun 15, 2011

Congresswoman Nita Lowey paid a visit to the Music Conservatory of Westchester (White Plains, NY) to announce the winners of the Congressional Art Competition.  The Music Conservatory of Westchester exhibited the artwork of over 40 local high school students throughout the competition.  Students from Harrison High School, Edgemont High School, Archbishop Stepinc High School, and New Rochelle High School were honored.  Harrison High School student Sogia San Marco won first place in the competition, and her original collage titled, "The Fight's Not Over," will hang in the Capitol building for one year.

The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual art competition that the Congressional Institute sponsors each spring.  The competition provides an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents.  Students submit entries to their representative's office, and panels of local artists in each district select the winning entries. More information.
