I am excited to invite students to participate in this year’s annual Congressional Arts Competition. Sponsored by the Congressional Institute, this nationwide contest recognizes and encourage artistic talent across the country. The competition is open to all high school students residing in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District, and the winning artist will have his or her artwork displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Students are requested to submit their entries here. (Students need to sign up for a free account through Slideroom before submitting their work.) Submissions must be received electronically by April 22. The artwork will be judged by a panel of qualified artists and community leaders from across the district. We will hold a reception and awards ceremony for the finalists in May in the district, at a venue to be determined. The winning student will be flown to Washington, D.C. on Southwest Airlines for a reception and award presentation at the end of June.
Please review the 2019 rules and regulations. If you have any questions, please contact Sam Woll at our Lansing District Office at (517) 993-0510.
