Original works by local high school students due April 26th

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that high school students in the Second Congressional District may now submit their original artwork to his Davenport office to be considered for the Congressional Art Competition.  The annual competition is hosted by the United States House of Representatives to recognize talented young artists from across the nation. The winning student from each district is invited to Washington, D.C. to attend a reception held in their honor and will have his or her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. The deadline for artwork to be received in Loebsack’s Davenport office is April 26th

“The creativity of our talented young artists demonstrates that the arts are thriving in Iowa.  Each year that I have hosted this contest, I have been amazed by the talent of these students,” said Loebsack. “For a young artist, having your artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol is quite a remarkable accomplishment. Judging this competition is always difficult, but I look forward to seeing this year’s entries and meeting with the artists.”

All entries should be sent to Loebsack’s Davenport office at 209 West 4th Street, no later than Friday, April, 26th.  Loebsack will also host a reception to honor all students who submit artwork on Saturday, May 4th at 11:00am at St. Ambrose University. For additional details about the competition, students should contact Dave Leshtz at 319-351-0789 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
