Here’s a great opportunity to Jr. and Sr. High School students that have an interest in art. The 31st Annual Congressional Art Competition call for entries has just gone out. The competition is open to all D.C. school students in Grades 8-12 and the deadline is April 25, 2012.
If you have a talented son or daughter, or know of someone that does, this is an excellent opportunity to have their work shown and exhibited, win awards and prizes, or even get a scholarship.
According to Eleanor Holmes Norton, in her capacity as Honorary Chair of the competition in the District of Columbia, the winning artwork will hang for one year in the U.S. Capitol in a national exhibit of winning artwork from the congressional district of every member of the House of Representatives.
