Milo Piovano-Marcotte and Madelyn Trimpi receive awards
In a Zoom meeting with talented high school artists from across Vermont on Monday, May 10, Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) announced the winners of the 40th annual Congressional Art Competition.
Milo Piovano-Marcotte won an honorable mention county award with, “Monsieur Lepidoptera,” computer generated art, and Madelyn Trimpi of Woodstock Union High School won an honorable mention county award with her striking painting, “The End.” The pieces were selected from a field of 160 entries from students across Vermont.
“I am amazed by the creativity of talented young artists across Vermont,” Rep. Welch said. “Picking a winner is always difficult because of the brilliant work of so many artists. Congratulations to Milo Piovano-Marcotte for their beautiful work… [and to] Madelyn for her beautiful work. They clearly have a bright future in the arts.”
The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual art competition initiated in 1981 by then-Rep. Jim Jeffords to celebrate and encourage the artistic talent of young people from across the country. High school students from across the country submit entries to their Representatives. Each year judges choose the best works of art from around the state.
