WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Tom Reed announced the 2021 Congressional High School Art Competition winner for the New York 23rd District is Alison Einink. Ms. Einink, a senior at Clymer High School, created the drawing “Antique Apothecary” in charcoal.
“We care about the importance of arts for students, and this is just one way we encourage their creativity and imaginations,” said Tom. “Alison is a very talented artist and we were glad she participated in this event this year."
Alison’s artwork will be on display in the United States Capitol for one year in the Cannon Tunnel.
- Each year, the Congressional Art Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage talent. Students submit their entries to their individual Representative’s office, where a panel of local artists then selects the overall winner. The competition was judged locally by Elmira College art professors, Jan Kather and Aaron Kather. Two art students, Max Lunden and Anthony Colitti also helped with the judging. The finalists' artwork will be displayed in Tom’s office in Washington, D.C.
“Thank you to all the young artists from our district who submitted their artwork,” Tom added. “We appreciate everyone participating in the event.”
