Rep. Zeldin Announces Winner of NY-1 2022 Congressional Art Competition


Recently, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) hosted a reception to award the winners of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition from New York’s First Congressional District at Artspace Patchogue Gallery.
The House of Representatives hosts a nationwide high school art competition every spring to raise awareness of the importance of art programs in our schools, and to recognize and celebrate the creativity and diversity of students.
This year’s first place winner is Shelby Spillett of Longwood High School. In addition to having her art displayed in the United States Capitol for one year, Shelby will be invited to Washington, DC to attend the reception for this year’s first place winners from each congressional district throughout the country.
Second place winner Sofia Jane Nagle of East Hampton High School and third place winners Joanna Guo of Smithtown Christian School and Myla Reece Mamolen of Rocky Point High School will have their artwork displayed in Congressman Zeldin’s Patchogue office.
“Congratulations to Shelby Spillett, the first place winner of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition for New York’s First Congressional District, as well as all of this year’s participants,” said Congressman Zeldin. “The quality and talent of young artists from across the First District remains unparalleled, which made it especially challenging to choose a winner. It’s an honor to be able to recognize their talent, creativity and hard work, and I look forward to seeing what each and every one of these students does next.”
