The Winner’s Artwork Will Be Displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building for One Year Alongside Winners from All 50 States

WOODBRIDGE, Va. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today invited high school students from Virginia’s Seventh District to submit original artwork for the annual Congressional Art Competition.

Every year, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives hold an art competition to recognize and celebrate the artistic talents of high school students from each congressional district. The winning artwork from each district is displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year alongside winners from all 50 states. Full details and instructions can be found on Spanberger’s website.

“Virginia boasts an abundance of artistic talent, and I’m looking forward to seeing the creativity and brilliance of Virginia’s students reflected in the artwork submitted to our annual Congressional Art Competition,” said Spanberger. “I encourage all aspiring young artists in Virginia’s Seventh District to participate and share their unique talents and perspectives.”

Student entries may include paintings, drawings, collages, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art, and photography. All entries must be original in concept, design, and execution and may not violate any U.S. copyright laws.

Any high school student who resides in Virginia’s Seventh District may submit one piece for consideration. Spanberger’s office will host an art show with students and judges in the spring to select a winner.

To submit, students can drop off submissions to either the Congresswoman’s Woodbridge or Fredericksburg district offices by Monday, March 18, 2024.
