Congressional Art Competition

Each spring, a nationwide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent of high school students in the nation, as well as in our congressional district. This competition, known as An Artistic Discovery, is open to all high school students in the 4th District.

The winning student artist will have their work of art displayed in the U.S. Capitol, while runner-ups will have their works displayed in my Washington, D.C. office and the Durham District office respectively.
