2012 Congressional Art Contest
by John Culberson on April 16, 2012 at 5:14 PM
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district.
This event is a wonderful opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents, and I encourage anyone that is interested to submit their artwork.
Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of local artists in each district select the winning entries, which are then displayed for one year at the United States Capitol.
Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual Awards Ceremony in Washington, DC. Since it began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
Deadline for entries is April 30, 2012 before 3:00pm CT.
