Kuster Announces Winner of 2018 Congressional Art Competition

(Concord, NH) – On Monday, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) hosted a reception at the Kimball Jenkins Carriage House in Concord to announce the winner of the 2018 Congressional Art Competition. Kuster was proud to announce Ms. Emily Dallaire, a sophomore at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, as the winner.

Students from across New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District participated in this year’s competition by submitting original artwork for evaluation. Dallaire’s drawing, ‘Seeing Double,’ will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol, and she has been invited to attend a reception in Washington, D.C. in June to view the display in person. During the reception, Kuster also presented certificates to other Second District students who participated in the competition in recognition of their accomplished submissions.

“I want to congratulate Emily for winning this year’s competition with her beautiful work of art,” said Kuster. “As a long-time supporter of funding for the arts and arts education, I’m proud to host this event to recognize and celebrate the incredible creativity and talent we have in New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District. I thank all of the students who submitted pieces to this year’s competition, and I look forward to admiring Emily’s drawing in the Capitol building.”

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide Members of Congress with an opportunity to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Kuster has participated in the Congressional Art Competition annually since taking office in 2013.
