Art Competition

COVID-19 UPDATE: My office is accepting art submissions electronically. You can email a picture of your artwork and release forms to Paige.Banfield@mail.house.gov. 

The NEW deadline to submit your art to our District Office is May 15 by 5 PM. An email from your teacher will substitute for their signature.

My office will run the Facebook Fan Favorite from May 17 - May 22. 

 
Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
 
In order to choose the winning piece of artwork, we will utilize both social media and the local Hudson Valley art community, and separate awards for the grand prize and Facebook Fan Favorite will be presented to the winners. Submissions will be posted on my official Facebook fan page for a period of two weeks where they will be voted on via the “like” button. 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. 
 
All work must be framed, and a release form must be submitted. Use the links below to learn more. 

The NEW deadline to submit your art to our District Office is May 15 by 5 PM. You can submit a picture of your work via email to Paige.Banfield@mail.house.gov. An email from your teacher will substitute for their previously required signature.

My office will run the Facebook Fan Favorite from May 17 - May 22. 

You can send in your submission via mail to our District Office - 123 Grand Street 2nd Floor, Newburgh, NY 12550 - or deliver it in person during business hours (Monday through Friday, 9-5 p.m.).
