Each spring, high school students from across the country are invited to participate in the Congressional Art Competition, sponsored by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The competition provides a unique opportunity to recognize the artistic talent of high school students from my Congressional District and to showcase their creative works.
A panel of judges will be tasked with carefully evaluating each piece and
selecting the overall winner whose work will be displayed for one year in
the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. The runner-up and third place artwork will be displayed in my district
office, located in Worthington.
Artwork must be two-dimensional. Each framed artwork can be no larger than 26 inches high, 26 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. If your artwork is selected as the winning piece, it must arrive in Washington, DC, framed. Even when framed, it must still measure no larger than the above maximum dimensions. No framed piece should weigh more than 15 pounds.
Accepted mediums for the two-dimensional artwork are as follows:
Each entry must be original in concept, design, and execution and may not
violate U.S. copyright laws.
