Congressional Art Competition

April 24, 2019 08:00 AM

Submissions for the 2019 Congressional Art Competitions are due Wednesday, April 24th.

Every year, Members of Congress sponsor a nation-wide arts competition for high school students. The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district.

The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students in the 9th District. Winning entries from each congressional district are hung in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol for one year, and the winning student artists will be flown to Washington, D.C. to be recognized at an award ceremony.


Artwork must be two-dimensional. Each framed artwork can be no larger than 26 inches high, 26 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. In order to reduce out of pocket expenses for students, entries are not required to be framed, only matted. Even when framed, it must still measure no larger than the above maximum dimensions. No framed piece should weigh more than 15 pounds.

Accepted mediums for the two-dimensional artwork are as follows:

• Paintings: oil, acrylics, watercolor, etc.

• Drawings: colored pencil, pencil, ink, marker, pastels, charcoal (it’s recommended that charcoal and pastel drawings be fixed)

• Collages: must be two dimensional

• Prints: lithographs, silkscreen, block prints

• Mixed Media: use of more than two mediums such as pencil, ink, watercolor, etc.

• Computer-generated art

• Photographs


All entries must be an original in concept, design and execution and may not violate U.S. Copyright laws. Any entry that has been copied from an existing photo or image will not be accepted. For more information on copyright laws, please click here.

Students from Washington’s 9th Congressional District who would like to participate must submit a completed Student Release Form (download it here) and a one-page description of the medium and the background of the piece along with their entry. All entries must comply with the competition guidelines and be received at our district office no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
