Do you know a talented high school visual artist who would love to have their artwork displayed at the US Capitol?
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. The competition provides an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents.
The 5th Congressional Distrcit of Oklahoma is excited to be participating in this contest to help promote the arts in central Oklahoma. The contest is open to high school students in Oklahoma's 5th Congressional District*, and the district's theme for this year's contest is "Oklahoma". Submissions must be original work and two-demensional, and all submissions must be received along with the form by Friday, April 27.
The winning entry will be displayed at the US Capitol for one year, and the winner will be recognized at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. with airfare provided for the student artist and one guest.
