Lindenhurst High School student Sierra Calderaro from Tara Biscardi’s photography class recently won the annual Congressional Art Competition for District 2.

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 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.

In recognition of this prestigious honor, Sierra’s work will be displayed at the United States Capitol for one year, and she is invited to the White House for a special luncheon to honor the winners from across the country.

Additionally, Lindenhurst High School art students Tabitha De Riggi-Dreher, Charlyse LaMantia, Julianna LaMantia, Quinn Ryan and Katelyn Samuels had their photography work displayed at Artspace Gallery in Patchogue for the Congressional Art Contest.
