Fischbach announces congressional art competition
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Michelle Fischbach, R-Minn., invites high school students from across Minnesota’s Seventh District to participate in the annual congressional art competition.
“I am very pleased to announce our office’s participation in this longstanding U.S. Capitol tradition. This is an excellent opportunity for high school students across the district to showcase their creativity and hard work, and I am very much looking forward to reviewing the many wonderful submissions,” Fischbach said.
Since 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated in the Congressional Institute’s annual Congressional Art Competition, a nationwide high school art competition that recognizes and encourages artistic talent across the district and nation.
The competition is open to all public, private, charter, and home school students in grades nine through 12. Winning submissions from each congressional district will be displayed for one year in the tunnel from the U.S. Capitol to the Cannon House Office Building, where they will be viewed by thousands of visitors, tourists, and distinguished Members of Congress. The winners will also be highlighted on Congresswoman Fischbach’s social media channels.
Additional guidelines and submission instructions are available here. Artwork must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. CT on Monday, May 3.
