  • 2017 Congressional Art Competition

    Each spring, the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor a nation-wide high school art competition. The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district. It allows me to showcase the talents of creative high school students in the Eighteenth Congressional District of Texas. It is an 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. SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Thursday, May 4, 2017 Artwork and entry forms must be submitted to the district office: Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee 1919 Smith Street Ste. 1180 Houston Texas 77002 QUESTIONS? Please contact Alma Sanchez at Alma.sanchez@mail.house.gov or 713.655.0050.
