Congressman David Scott is a proud annual sponsor of the Thirteenth Congressional District's Annual Art Competition, An Artistic Discovery. This competition brings together the best student artwork from high school students across the Thirteenth District.
The Congressional Art Competition was created in 1982 as a way to showcase the artistic talents of young people throughout the country. To date hundreds of thousands of high school students from around the nation have been able to participate at the local level. The first place winner will be invited to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Washington, D.C. where their artwork will hang in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol for one year.
Additionally, the top 3 winners are eligible to receive scholarships from the Savannah College of Art and Design or the Art Institute of Atlanta ranging from $2,000 to $12,000.
There are several ways to qualify for the competition:
High School Contests or School Selection
Public and private high schools in the Thirteenth Congressional District are invited to select up to five pieces of artwork to represent their school in this competition. The selection process for that artwork is completely at the discretion of school officials. Local schools will be mailed a packet with the complete rules, deadlines, and an entry form.
Home School Participation
Home school students are encouraged to participate in the Artistic Discovery contest and contact Scott Goldstein in Congressman Scott's District Office at 770-210-5073 for more information on competition guidelines.
