Cornwall Student Wins Congressional Art Competition

A student from the Cornwall Central High School was chosen by a panel of judges as the winner of this year’s Congressional Art Competition.

Atticus Jackson was honored along with other high school students from New York’s 18th Congressional District during a reception held by Congressman Pat Ryan on Saturday. The young lady’s artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year alongside winners from all 50 states.

“The Hudson Valley is home to immense talent – I’m amazed at the creativity and skill that our high schoolers channeled into their artwork,” Ryan observed. “These young artists spent so much time on their masterpieces, perfecting every detail to accurately express their individuality. The hard work of all of our entrants deserves to be celebrated today. I’m looking forward to seeing a piece of the Hudson Valley every day on the hallway in the Capitol among the artwork of high schoolers from across the nation.”

Local high school students who submitted artworks to the 2023 Congressional Art Competition were invited by Ryan to attend a reception in their honor along with their families and guests. The winning work of art was chosen by a panel of judges from across the district.

The Congressional Art Competition is held annually each spring. Over 650,000 high school students have participated in the competition since its inception in 1982.
