SWR High School sophomore Yusra Rashidzada recently had her artwork entered into the Congressional Art Competition. At a reception at the Artspace gallery in Patchogue, it was announced that Yusra won third place out of approximately 60 candidates from across the First Congressional District. Her painting will be hung in Congressman Lee Zeldin’s office in Patchogue.

“Yusra’s dedication to her art is inspiring and I am always impressed by her artistic abilities,” art teacher Sam Shepard said. “Receiving third place in the Congressional Art Competition is a great accomplishment for a tenth grader. I look forward to working with Yusra on more art competitions in the future.”
