Each year, congressional offices may participate in the Congressional Art Competition, "An Artistic Discovery." This nationwide competition provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the talent of high school students and acknowledge our nation's gifted young adults.
Since the competition was created in 1982, high school students from across the nation have been able to participate in expressing their creativity artistically. The winning entries from last year's successful competition currently hang in the Cannon Tunnel at the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. This remarkable exhibit represents the combined efforts of the Members of Congress who conducted their local contests and the students who participated.
I invite each high school student that lives in the First Congressional District, to compete. Art Teachers should receive an invitation to the competition held in February each year at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah. If you are unsure if you reside in the First Congressional District, please click here and enter your home zip code.
