About The Competition
Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives as an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district. The Congressional Art Competition was created in 1982, and hundreds of thousands of high school students have participated throughout the years. One winner is chosen from each participating district and the winner’s artwork is then sent to Washington, D.C. for display in the U.S. Capitol.
