2024 “Portraying Mark Twain Competition” Winners

For the eighth year the Center for Mark Twain Studies has sponsored the “Portraying Mark Twain” art competition for all Elmira College students. Four final images were selected from sixty-two submissions that represented Mark Twain, his literature, or aspects of his life in Elmira and Quarry Farm.  The winners are Piper Andrews’26, John Price’27, Abby Flatt’26 and Samantha Nikula’27. Their winning entries will be featured in future publications of Elmira College and the Center for Mark Twain Studies.

Works by former winning students can be seen in the  “Mark Twain and Elmira” exhibit in Cowles Hall, on social media posts, and in various printed matter relating to the Center.

New works are being accepted for the 2025 contest. See last year’s submissions at this link:
