Maloney Announces 2014 Congressional Art Competition
Mar 3, 2014
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney announced that high school student submissions are now being accepted for the 2014 Congressional Art Competition. Since 1982, hundreds of thousands of students from across the country have participated in the competition, sponsored by the Congressional Institute, which encourages Members of Congress to recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents.
“Art from the Hudson Valley has been displayed in museums throughout the world, and I look forward to seeing the creative and original artwork from our talented students in the Hudson Valley,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.
The submission period for artwork will be held from Monday, March 3rd to Friday, April 25th. Art work and the Student Information and Release Form should be dropped off to our Newburgh Office located at 123 Grand Street in Newburgh, NY by April 25th.
In order to choose the winning piece of artwork, Rep. Maloney will utilize both social media and the local Hudson Valley art community. Submissions will be posted on Rep. Maloney’s official Facebook fan page for a period of two weeks (April 28th to May 9th) where they will be voted on via the “like” button. In early May, all entries will be presented to a panel of local judges from the 18th district of New York at a reception for all participants, and they will determine a grand prize winner, winners for each medium and a Facebook Fan Favorite.
The grand prize winning artwork will be displayed in the Capitol for one year and the winning student plus one guest will receive complimentary airfare to Washington, DC for a reception in June. You can view last year’s art competition entries here.
