Congressional Art Competition

Each spring, a nationwide high school art competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation and in each Congressional District.  Since its inception in 1982, over 650,000 high school students have been involved in the Congressional Art Competition.

The winning entries from each district are prominently displayed in the Cannon Tunnel in Washington, D.C.  The Cannon Tunnel connects the Cannon House Office Building with the U.S. Capitol and is traveled on a daily basis by members of Congress, staff members and people visiting our nation's capital.  The winning artist from the 5th District is also invited to an Awards Reception held in June each year in Washington, D.C. 

Submission Deadline for the 2019 Congressional Art Competition is March 5, 2019.  For details on the Competition and how to enter, click here
