My office is proud to participate in the Congressional Institute’s Art Competition and will be reviewing entries submitted by high schoolers across New York’s 17th District!
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. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
You can find the Rules for Students and Teachers as well as the Student Release Form on the Congressional Art Competition page of the House.gov website.
We will recognize the finalists in our district and the winner will be invited to an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning artwork will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol while finalists will have their artwork displayed in our district office or DC office. The second-place contestant will have their artwork displayed in Congressman Lawler’s Washington, D.C. office and the third-place contestant’s work will be displayed in Congressman Lawler’s District office.
For your submission to be considered, contestants must ensure their artwork along with the completed Student Information & Release form are recieved at Congressman's Lawler's district office no later than close of business on Friday, April 28th.
