Winner will receive two round-trip air tickets to see their artwork displayed in US Capitol

 

Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today invited high school students from across Iowa’s First Congressional District to submit original artwork for the annual Congressional Art Competition, “An Artistic Discovery.”

 

The Congressional Art Competition, first held in 1982, is a nationwide high school arts competition sponsored by the US House of Representatives.  One winning piece of artwork from each House district will be selected to be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel of the US Capitol Building in Washington for the next year.

 

“I encourage Iowa high school students to participate in this year’s art competition,” Braley said.  “There are many gifted young artists in eastern Iowa, and this is a great opportunity for their work to be displayed for thousands of people to see.  It’s a great honor to feature the work of an outstanding young artist in the US Capitol.”

 

Any high school student from the First Congressional District of Iowa is eligible to submit their artwork for consideration.  To enter, students must submit a digital image of their artwork via Braley’s website.  The submissions will be compiled into an internet gallery for public voting.

 

The submission deadline is April 23rd, 2012.  There is a limit of one submission per student.  Voting will close on May 1st, 2012, and the winner will be announced.  He or she will receive two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, DC, to see their artwork displayed and attend a winners’ reception.

 

For full details on the 2012 Art Competition, including information on how to enter, please visit Braley’s website at http://braley.house.gov/art-competition.
