Attention art teachers and relatives of budding Monets — the U.S. Congress holds an art competition for high school students every spring, and members of Connecticut’s delegation want your students to take part.
The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual art competition held since 1982. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries.
Connecticut’s five congressmen and women host receptions for artists and their families and friends. The winning entry from every district is displayed at the U.S. Capitol for one year, and winners get to travel to D.C. for a reception.
