Please see the letter below regarding the 2019 Congressional Art Competition if you are interested.



Dear Counselors and Art Teachers,
I am pleased to announce the 2019 Congressional Art Competition for high school students, grades 9 – 12.  This competition affords students the opportunity to share their creative talents with the community and the country.  The winning entry from each Congressional district will be displayed for one year in the United States Capitol. The overall winner will have the opportunity to attend the Congressional Art Competition Forum in Washington, DC, in June with Southwest Airlines providing airfare for the winner and one parent or guardian.
