Maloney Announces Winners of 2020 Congressional Art Competition

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced the winner of the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. This year’s winner is Anneke Chan of Haldane High School. Her winning artwork is titled, “Pool Party.”

“Young artists in the Hudson Valley have incredible talent. It makes me proud to see the artwork of our students showcased in the Capitol every year. Congratulations to Anneke for winning this year’s Congressional Art Competition, and a big thank you to all of the students who submitted their fantastic artwork. It’s not easy finishing up the school year from home, but I was happy to see so many student artists send in their submissions virtually. It’s important we continue this great tradition,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

Anneke is the salutatorian of Haldane High School, and plans to pursue a dual degree in studio art and anthropology at Tufts University in the fall. She enjoys reading, writing, and painting at home.

Anneke’s artwork, “Pool Party”, will be displayed for a year in the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. All of the other works of art submitted for the 2020 Congressional Art Competition will be displayed in Rep. Maloney’s Newburgh office. An album of the 2020 Congressional Art Competition entries can be found on Rep. Maloney’s Facebook page: Facebook.com/RepSeanMaloney.
