WASHINGTON – A high school senior at Clymer Central School has won the congressional art competition.

Congressman Tom Reed’s Office says Alison Einink’s charcoal drawing “Antique Apothecary” is receiving recognition.

The 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.

All of the finalists’ artwork will be displayed in Reed’s office in Washington, D.C.
