Representative Allen Announces Congressional Art Competition
U.S. Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) recently announced the 2022 High School Congressional Art Competition.
Every year, members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor a nationwide high school art competition. This contest is open to all high school students (9th–12th grade) in Georgia’s 12th district. The winning piece will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol, and its student artist will receive an invitation to travel to Washington, D.C., to attend the national winners’ reception. “The Congressional Art Competition is a special tradition that provides high school students the opportunity to display their art for the country to see,” said Congressman Allen. “I look forward to seeing submissions from our young artists in Georgia’s 12th District, and encourage all interested high school students to participate.”
Submitted artwork must be original in concept, design, and execution and must depict life in the 12th District of Georgia. All artwork must be submitted by April 20 and dropped off at Allen’s Vidalia District Office: Vidalia District Office: 107 Old Airport Rd. Ste A, Vidalia, GA 30475, (912) 403-3311, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m.-5p.m.
