Congressional Arts Competition
< Back to Community Corner  

Each high school in our 12th Congressional District is invited to submit original student artwork. A panel of judges, distinguished in the arts, selects the first, second, third and fourth place winners, along with honorable mention.

The artwork for the 2006 competition will be due the week of April 24, 2006, with the final deadline being April 28, 2006.

General Guidelines

Artwork will hang in the Capitol for the entire year of the exhibition and cannot be returned to students earlier. Students, therefore, should submit artwork they will not need for other purposes.

Artwork categories are as follows:

  • Paintings: oil, acrylics, watercolor, etc.
  • Drawings: pastels, colored pencil, pencil, charcoal, ink, markers
  • Collage: must be two-dimensional
  • Prints: lithographs, silkscreen, block prints
  • Mixed media: use of more than two mediums such as pencil, ink, etc.
  • Computer generated art
  • Photography

A copy of the Student Release Form, signed by both the teacher and the student, must be attached to the artwork to certify the originality of the piece. Each entry must be an original in concept, design and execution and may not violate any U.S. copyright laws.

Note: Any entry, which has been reproduced from an existing photo, painting, graphic, advertisement or any other work produced by another person is a violation of the competition rules and will not be accepted.

The final decision regarding the suitability of all artworks for the exhibition in the Capitol will be made by a panel of qualified persons chaired by the Architect of the Capitol.

• A copy of the Student Release Form must be attached to the back of the artwork along with an adhesive label as shown.

• Please use the largest adhesive label you have available. And include the following information:
Member Name:
State and District:
Title of Piece:
Student Name:
