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. 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 Tuesday, April 24, 2018 by 5:00 pm CT. Artwork should be delivered in the form of an electronic copy of the work you are entering into the competition. Please send an electronic copy of the artwork to Victoria.Hurst@mail.house.gov. Please note: All entries submitted must be original in concept, design, and execution, and the winner will be decided by Congressman Steve King. It is the Congressman’s intention to announce a winner on Friday, April 27, 2018. If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please contact my Ames office at 712-299-4566.
