North Schuylkill Senior Wins Artistic Discovery Contest Sponsored by Congressman Meuser

A North Schuylkill Senior won the Artistic Discovery Contest sponsored by Congressman Meuser.

On Monday evening, Congressman Dan Meuser held a reception to honor the participants and announce the winner of the Congressional Art Competition for Pennsylvania’s 9th District.

Each Spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors the Congressional Art Competition to recognize young artists from across the country.

The reception, held at the Schoeneman Corporation in St. Clair, displayed nearly 30 pieces of original artwork that were provided from students from school district's throughout the district.

The artwork was also on display at an exhibit at Penn State Schuylkill who partnered with Meuser for the contest.

The theme for the contest was “Reflections of Pennsylvania”.

At the event Monday, Cassidy Heckler, a senior at North Schuylkill was announced as the winner.

Heckler's piece will be displayed in the halls of the U.S. Capitol for the next year. The Congressman will also select a few pieces to be displayed in his Washington, D.C. office. All other pieces will be on display in the district offices in Pottsville, Palmyra, and Reading. The art will be returned to the students after one year.
