The U.S. House of Representatives Congressional Arts Caucus coordinates an annual art competition for high school students.  This competition provides a unique opportunity to recognize the rich artistic talents of high school students throughout the nation. This event features two categories (students may submit one piece per category): Photography and All Other Permissible Media.

This is a prestigious competition.  The winning artwork will represent the 8th District in Washington, D.C., by being displayed in the U.S. Capitol as part of a year-long exhibit.  The winning artist may receive free round-trip airfares for the national winners’ reception in Washington, D.C., and be eligible for a scholarship from a prestigious arts and design college.  Other winners’ pieces will be showcased at my Washington, DC, and district offices for the next year.
