Congressional art competition open to high school students


A congressional art competition is open to high school students across the country, according to a news release from U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore.

The contest is a nationwide endeavor for students to showcase their artistic abilities while competing for the chance to have their work displayed in the U.S. Capitol.

To enter, students in Walden's district must submit no more than two photographs of their work to his office by May 2. After artwork is received, one winner will be selected and have his or her artwork sent to Washington, D.C., to be displayed as part of the national student art exhibition in the U.S. Capitol. Four runners-up will be invited to have their artwork hung in Walden's offices. Artwork will hang for one year and be returned to the artists.
