The Winner’s Artwork Will Be Displayed in the U.S. Capitol for One Year

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today invited Central Virginia high school students to participate in the annual Congressional Art Competition, in which the winner’s piece will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year alongside winning artwork from all 50 states.

Each spring, 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.

This annual contest is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the artistic talent of Central Virginia students. Full details and instructions can be found on Rep. Spanberger’s website.

“I’m continually impressed by the dedication, creativity, and brilliance of Virginia’s students — and the Art Competition submissions from our district reflect their tremendous artistic talents,” said Spanberger. “The student artwork displayed in the halls of our Capitol serves as a testament to our country’s rich cultural diversity. When I walk by, I am proud to see the work of Virginia’s young artists represented in the mosaic. As I look forward to reviewing submissions in the coming weeks, I hope that many among the next generation of artists from the Seventh District will share their favorite masterpieces with us.”

Student entries may include paintings, drawings, collages, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art, and photography. Any high school student who resides in Virginia’s Seventh District may submit one piece for consideration. Submissions are due online by Monday, April 25, 2022 and must be submitted online using the instructions on the Congresswoman’s website.
