US Rep. Chris Collins
WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Chris Collins is encouraging local high school students in New York’s 27th district to participate in this year’s Congressional Art Competition.

The winning artist will be flown to Washington, where their artwork will be on display in the U.S. Capitol building for a year.

The congressman issued a press release Friday asking students to submit entries.

It follows in its entirety:
“Each day, members of Congress and hundreds of visitors to the Capitol walk by the award winning artwork submitted by high school students from around the country,” said Collins.  “I look forward to another year with excellent submissions from NY-27 students and the opportunity to welcome our winning artist to Washington this summer.”

Last year there were over 80 submissions. The winning artist will receive a round trip flight to Washington, D.C. to see their artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol, where it will be on display for one year.

Now in its 33rd year, the Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students in New York’s 27th Congressional District.  Submissions are due to one of Congressman Collins two district offices by Tuesday, April 7, 2015. A reception and award ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 11 at Genesee Community College in Batavia, NY. Local high schools have been notified regarding contest rules and submission guidelines.  Interested students should see their art teacher for details or contact Chris Catt from Congressman Collins’ office at (585) 519-4002.
