Art Competition

Every year, the United States House of Representatives sponsors a Congressional Art Competition for high school students across our nation. The annual competition provides an opportunity for students across the country to exhibit their artwork and receive national recognition. It also demonstrates the important role that the arts play in American society. The first place winning entry from each congressional district is displayed in the corridor tunnel leading to the U.S. Capitol Building for one year, where it is seen by thousands of people.

Each year I sponsor the Congressional Arts Competition in the 12th district.

For information on the 2016 competition, please review the guidelines for students and teachers as well as the student release form that must accompany any entry.

For further information and details, please see your high school art instructor or contact my district office at (212) 860-0606.
