U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-10) announced the 2018 Congressional Art Competition for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. The competition is open to all high school students who reside in the District. The Best in Show winner of the competition will have their piece of art displayed in the United States Capitol. Congresswoman Comstock is a member of the Congressional Art Caucus and started the House Arts Caucus in the Virginia General Assembly.
“I always look forward to the Congressional Art Competition so we can experience the creativity of the Virginia’s 10th Congressional District students. Every year we see exceptional works of art, as the students compete for Best In Show. The winners will have their artwork displayed at the U.S. Capitol in a high traffic area where lawmakers, staff, and visitors can enjoy it. I want to thank the dedicated art teachers in our community who encourage students to enter their artwork so their artistic talent can be seen and celebrated.”
Students should drop off their completed artwork on April 2, 2-5 p.m. at Enterprise Hall on the George Washington Virginia Science & Technology Campus. Art submitted must be ready to hang and entries are limited to two per student.
