Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) encourages high school students throughout New York's 13th congressional district to submit entries as part of this year’s Congressional Art Competition, a national contest open to high school students from around the district to showcase their artistic talents with an opportunity to display their winning art in the United States Capitol for up to one year.
Rep. Espaillat serves as a national co-host of this year's art competition, which is open to high school students from around the nation.
There is no required theme, however artwork that highlights the culture and diversity of New York's 13th congressional district is highly encouraged. The original artwork may include digital submissions of paintings, drawings, collages, and photography. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, artwork may be submitted from the 2019 school year, the 2020 virtual school year and the current 2021 hybrid year – as many communities continue to navigate the reopening process for students and families.
For questions about art entries from New York's 13th congressional district, please contact Michelle Booker at [email protected] or Laurie Tobias-Cohen at [email protected].
