REPRESENTATIVE TREY HOLLINGSWORTH INVITES HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONGRESSIONAL ART COMPETITION
The competition takes place across the country with the winner's artwork being displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year
Jeffersonville, IN — Rep. Trey Hollingsworth invited high school students from across Indiana's 9th District to enter submissions into the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students, grades 9-12, in the 9th District. Four winners will be selected with the Grand Prize winner having their artwork displayed in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol Building for an entire year alongside winners from other congressional districts.
"I am glad to continue the tradition of the Congressional Art Competition, and I am eager to see all of the work of talented young Hoosiers from the 9th District," said Rep. Trey Hollingsworth. "I strongly encourage all high school students to participate and look forward to displaying the four winning pieces during the year to come."
There are seven categories of original artwork that are eligible to be submitted for consideration: paintings, drawings, collages, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art, and photography. The submissions should measure no larger than 26" x 26" x 4", including frame. While submissions are not required to be framed during consideration, the four winning pieces must be framed once they are selected.
The deadline for submissions of artwork by all students is April 28, 2017. Students wishing to submit their work for consideration can call the Jeffersonville Office at 812-288-3999 to get further details. A completed Student Information and Release Form must accompany each entry.
