Marino Recognizes 2018 Congressional Art Competition Winner
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Marino issued the following statement announcing Hannah Corson, of New Albany, PA, as the winner of the Congressional Art Competition for Pennsylvania’s Tenth Congressional District.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. 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.
Hannah’s entry, inspired by Memorial Day Services, is a riderless horse that symbolizes a warrior that will ride no more. Miss Corson dedicated the drawing to those that served, especially those who have sacrificed all for their country and to their families who are forever changed.
Congressman Marino issued the following statement:
“I was immediately moved when I first saw Hannah’s drawing. The attention to detail and craft with which it was drawn is inspiring enough but when I heard Hannah explain the symbolism behind her work, I instantly reflected on how thankful I was to live in this great country. Hannah’s great work is a reminder to us all of the freedoms we enjoy and the great sacrifice that comes to ensure that freedom will continue on for future generations. I am proud of Hannah for her work and happy to announce her as the winner of the Congressional Art Competition for Pennsylvania’s Tenth Congressional District. I thank her for the beautiful submission and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Congressman Marino is currently serving his fourth term in the House of Representatives. He serves as Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law and also sits on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
