WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) announced the 2018 Congressional Art Competition and invited high school students from throughout Indiana’s 2nd District to submit their original artwork by April 13.
“Every spring I look forward to seeing the wide variety of artwork from our incredibly talented young Hoosier artists,” Walorski said. “I encourage all interested high school students in the 2nd District to take this opportunity to showcase their hard work, passion and creativity.”
The winning submission will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year alongside winning artwork from other congressional districts nationwide.
Information about submitting artwork, including guidelines and key dates, can be found at walorski.house.gov/art.
Each spring, members of Congress sponsor a nationwide high school arts competition. The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent across the nation, including in Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District, according to Walorski.
Since the contest began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have been involved.
