2014 Congressional Art Competition

The 2014 Congressional Art Competition has begun!

We are excited to announce this year's Congressional Art Competition, An Artistic Discovery, an annual event that allows high school students from our region in Texas and across the country to showcase their artistic abilities.

Any high school student in Texas's Eighteenth Congressional District is welcome to submit his or her artwork to my office. The winner of the competition will win two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, DC.

In addition, the winner's artwork will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol for a year. The Congressional Art Competition allows Houston to showcase the talents of our creative middle school and high school students in the Eighteenth Congressional District of Texas. It provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young artists to have their work hung in the U.S. Capitol for one year. All high schools in the district are encouraged to participate.

The winner will be chosen by a panel of art experts and community leaders. When the winning artist is chosen, his or her artwork is displayed in the U.S. Capitol. In June, Congress will host a reception in Washington for winners from across the country.

The winner will receive two round trip tickets to Washington D.C. to attend the reception. Guidelines for the contest are attached to this email. Interested 9th - 12th grade students are encouraged to contact their principal, guidance counselor or art teacher.

Questions? Contact (713) 655-0050 for more information.

All entries must be received by April 28, 2014, and may be submitted at 1919 Smith Street Ste. 229 Houston, Texas.
