Voting Open for 2012 Congressional Art Competition


A few young artists in the north country have the chance to have their work in the national spotlight.

It's up to you to pick who it will be.

Voting is now open to decide the winner of the 2012 Congressional Art Competition for the 23rd District.

Four high school students, from Colton, Lorraine, Potsdam, and Plattsburgh, have had their work selected as finalists.

The piece that gets the most online votes will be displayed for an entire year in the U.S. Capitol building as part of a national student art exhibition.

"I think it's really important to these young artists. I think it gives them an opportunity to compete, number one,  and number two, to have their artwork displayed for literally thousands of people to see," said Rep. Bill Owens, D-23rd District.

You can cast your vote until May 3rd.

The winning artist will be announced the next day.
