I find that hard to believe but one out of five members of congress no longer participates in the Congressional Artistic Discovery Contest.
King tells Newsday "he stopped conducting the competition several years ago because of lack of interest."
Go to the Newsday article and read about the fantastic entries from the other districts. Is king saying from Oyster Bay to Babylon and Massapequa to Long Beach there are no young people interested in the arts?
How about Art in the Park in Massapequa Park?
Maybe look to the Town of Oyster Bay Arts Council for entries?
Or any of the schools located in the district?
How about trying next year because the 3rd district is full of very talented people?
