Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. This event, first introduced in 1982, allows high school students from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and U.S. territories to showcase their artistic ability. It is an opportunity for high school students in my Congressional district to have their work displayed, for 11 months, in an exhibit in the Cannon House Office Building tunnel that leads to the U.S. Capitol.
We are accepting artwork in a variety of media, thereby allowing students with various talents to participate. There will be a panel of professional judges from the local art community who will serve as judges of this contest. The judges are from independent groups and are not affiliated with my Congressional staff.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the art competition this year will be held virtually. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 23, 2021, at midnight. No work will be accepted after the April 23rd deadline.
Please submit the 2021 Student Release Form with your work.
