Deadline is April 20 for annual contest

High school students are invited to submit their artwork to the Newburgh office of U.S. Rep. Sean Maloney for the annual Congressional Art Competition. The deadline is Friday, April 20. The winning artwork will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol Complex for a year and the artist and a guest will be flown to Washington, D.C., for a reception.

Angel, by Alana Green of Mahopac, was the winner of the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.

In addition, all submissions will be displayed on Maloney’s Facebook page beginning April 23 to be judged with “likes” for a social-media award. For details, see
