2017 National Congressional Art Competition


Each spring, members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsors the Congressional Art Competition for high school students across the country. The annual art competition provides Members of Congress with the opportunity to showcase the talents of creative young artists in their districts. 

Students from all high schools in the First Congressional District will be able to participate. Submissions must be uploaded to Congressman Brady’s Facebook page or submitted by email to PA01ArtComp@mail.house.gov by 5 pm, Friday, April 25. One winning entry will be selected from the entries in the District – this winning work of art will be taken to Washington, D.C. to hang in the U.S. Capitol for a year. The winning artist will also be invited to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Washington, D.C. with the other winners from across the country.

Please see the attached rules for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.
