Each spring, a nationwide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district.
The art contest is open to all high school students in the 2nd District. The over-all winner of our district's competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will also include artwork from other contest winners nation-wide.
The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
