Vote for M-W artists in Congressional Art Competition

on April 23, 2018

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 in the nationwide competition.

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney’s link to the 18th District competition below features artwork from students in his congressional district. In early May, all entries will be presented to a panel of local judges from the 18th district of New York. Winners in three categories will be announced at a reception for all participants. There is one grand prize winner as well as winners for each medium. The third winning category is Facebook Fan Favorite, which is given to the project with the most Likes on Facebook. You can vote for the Facebook Fan Favorite until April 30 by clicking the Congressional Art Competition link below and choosing an image to “Like”.

Monroe-Woodbury students have 8 entries this year. Check them out below and then go to the Congressional Art Competition link and Like your favorites! Remember, voting is open through April 30!
