Students can enter Congressional Art Competition

Congressman Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, announced the start of the 2018 Congressional Art Competition and now will be accepting submissions from all high school students who live in the 16th Congressional District.

Each spring, the U.S. House of Representatives offers talented young artists from across the country an opportunity to showcase their artistic abilities.

The first place pieces of artwork are displayed in a year-long exhibit spanning along the walls of the Cannon Tunnel, which leads to the U.S. Capitol Building. And the three runner-up pieces will be displayed in the Congressman’s district offices.

In addition to having their art displayed, the first-place winner will be awarded two tickets to Washington, D.C. to attend the official art show opening and a following reception hosted by the Congressional Institute.

The submission deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, April 20, in the Ottawa District Office.
