High school students from Upper Manhattan's Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood are being encouraged by their local representative in Congress to apply for a national arts competition. High school artists who submit winning works to the annual Congressional Institute competition have the chance to see their works displayed for a year in the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C., Congressman Adriano Espaillat said in a press release."High school students from my district are encouraged to submit entries to my office, and a panel of district artists will select the winning entries. Once selected, winners will be recognized both in my district and during an annual awards ceremony in Washington D.C.," Espaillat said in a statement.
