20150320_154233

Here are the six medal winners from Madison County that will go to the next round of judging.

Here are the exciting results! The Earlville Opera House organized the 2015 Congressional Art Competition, An Artistic Discovery for Madison County on behalf of Congressman Richard Hanna’s office. EOH received 45 submissions from three schools: Hamilton Central High, Oneida High, and Sherburne-Earlville High School. This is the second year that Madison County schools were represented in this national contest.

We’d like to thank our judges for generously donating their time to assess the entries. This year’s judges were Amy McKinnon and Stacy Brock, both artists working at Golden Artist Colors in New Berlin. “There was a lot of great work and it made for some difficult decisions,” says McKinnon. “Best of luck with the show and to all the young artists there.”

Here are the medal winners from Madison County – alphabetically by school:

Scott Bodnar, 11th grade, Hamilton Central School, male portrait.
Becca Rogers, 12th grade, Hamilton Central School, “Chameleon.”
Shannon Gallagher, 11th grade, Oneida High School, “Corkscrew.”
Maddie Sgarlata, 12th grade, Oneida High School, “Naptime.”
Helen Judge, Sherburne-Earlville Central School, “Peace in the Horizon.”

Congratulations to Madison County’s winners! The next round of judging will be at the District-wide Art show on Saturday, April 18th at the Roberson Museum & Science Center in Binghamton (30 Front Street). Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
