Do You Have an Outstanding High School Art Student?

Entries being accepted for the Congressional Art Competition

Attention art teachers—members of Connecticut's Congressional delegation want your high school students to take part in the U.S. Congress annual art competition—for the chance to win a scholarship, travel to Washington, D.C. for a reception, and have their artwork displayed at the U.S. Capitol for one year.

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. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

Students submit entries to their representative's office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Contact your representative to confirm your district's participation and obtain specific guidance, or visit http://www.house.gov/content/educate/art_competition/ to get details about the contest.
