Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik welcomed NY-21’s 2017 Congressional Art Competition winner, Skylar Fetter, to the United States Capitol. Skylar, a senior from Norwood-Norfolk Central School in Norwood, NY, was joined by her family as she was recognized for her winning photograph, Spectator, which will be showcased in the U.S. Capitol for an entire year. Winners of the Congressional Art Competition are selected from each Congressional District. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
“For the next year Skylar’s photograph will be on display at the U.S. Capitol for visitors from around the country and around the world to see,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I am impressed by Skylar’s talent and her beautiful photograph, and I know that her work will be an inspiration to the thousands of visitors who tour the U.S. Capitol over the next year as well.”
