JUST IN: The 2017 Congressional Art Competition is now open to students across the country.

Each spring, a nationwide high school art competition is sponsored by members of the US House of Representatives. The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent of young Americans as well as our congressional district.  This competition, known as Artistic Discovery, is open to all high school students in the 7th District.  The overall winner of our district’s competition will be displayed for one year in the US Capitol.  The exhibition in Washington will also include artwork from other contest winners nationwide.
