I am pleased to announce that voting for the 2018 Congressional Art Contest has begun! The high school student you select as the 2018 People’s Choice Award winner will represent Iowa’s Second District and have his or her art work displayed for one year in the tunnel leading to the U.S. Capitol.
There is no doubt that it is going to be a tough choice for you to make. With so many talented artists in our high schools, you have a lot of high quality pieces to choose from.
