Sade DeLosSantos will compete against high school artists from across Central New York for the honor of having her art displayed in Washington, D.C. as the 22nd Congressional District representative in the House of Representatives Discover Art Competition.

CVA junior Sade DeLosSantos has entered her original work of art in the U.S. Congressional Artistic Discovery Contest. Her art teacher Christina Korba hand-delivered the piece to U.S. Representative Richard Hanna’s Utica office where it will be judged against works of high school students from across the 22nd Congressional District. The winner’s work will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.

Each spring, the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives conduct the nation-wide high school arts competition as an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation.

High school students may enter original paintings, drawings, collage, prints, mixed media, computer generated art, or photography.

“We wish her the best of luck in the process.” said Ms. of Sade's art
