Congressional Art Competition
Each year the Congressional Art Competition, “An Artistic Discovery,” is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives to recognize and encourage the artistic talent around the nation and specifically in each member’s congressional district. This competition is open to all high-school students and the winner’s art piece will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.
There are three important forms to be included with each student’s art submission: Art Submission Checklist, Student Information and Release Form, Rules and Regulations for Students and Teachers. Please be sure to note the Changes to the 2017 Congressional Art Competition from previous years. The Fourth District winner, along with one guest, will be flown to Washington, D.C. for the congressional celebration courtesy of Southwest Airlines.
All artwork must be submitted and received by Friday, April 28, 2017 by 5:00pm ct. All artwork should be delivered or mailed to my Ames Office located at 1421 S Bell Avenue, Suite 102 Ames, Iowa 50010. If you plan to hand deliver the artwork, please call ahead to make sure a staffer will be there to accept it. All entries submitted must be original in concept, design and execution. The winner will be determined by Congressman Steve King.
