Washington, D.C. – Are you, your child, or someone you know a budding high school artist who would like to see his or her work displayed in the United States Capitol?

The competition features one winner from each congressional district and territory in the United States.  The winner will have the opportunity to attend an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., see his or her artwork on display, and meet his or her U.S. Representative.

“Every spring, I look forward to seeing the talent, creativity, and originality displayed by our high school artists,” said Rep. Mac Thornberry.  “Seeing our young people working hard and getting involved always makes me proud.” 

Interested high school students should call Rep. Thornberry’s office at (202) 225-3706 or visit his webpage (http://thornberry.house.gov/art) for more information on competition guidelines and a description of how to submit an entry.  The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 21, 2014.  Students may submit entries starting today.
