Tuesday, May 07, 2013


Congressman Cicilline announced today the winners of his 2013 Congressional Art Competition.

Congressman David Cicilline announced today the winners of his 2013 Congressional Art Competition.  

Teegan Kilcoyne of the Met School East Bay Campus took top honors, Charlie Shea of Middletown High School placed second, and Kalyn Carley of Barrington Christian Academy came in third.  

“These talented Rhode Island students make our state proud with their creativity and artistic ingenuity, and I thank everyone who helped make this competition so successful. Each work submitted through my office was exceptional, and I only regret that we could choose just one winner,” said Cicilline.

Kilcoyne, a Bristol resident, will receive roundtrip airline tickets to Washington, D.C.  to attend a congressional reception and see her art put on display in the United States Capitol.

Shea, a Middletown resident, will have his work displayed in Cicilline’s Capitol Hill office, while Barrington resident Carley’s work will be featured in Cicilline’s Pawtucket office.

The judges for Cicilline’s Art Competition were Randy Rosenbaum, Executive Director of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, RISCA Community Arts Program Director Elena Calderon Patino and RiverzEdge Arts Project Executive Director Rebekah Greenwald Speck. The submitted pieces of art were judged for creativity, originality, technical skills, subject matter and creative impact.

The competition, sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives, recognizes and encourages high school artists both in Rhode Island’s First Congressional District and across the nation. Cicilline coordinated his contest for high school students in the First Congressional District.
