Walorski Announces 2020 Congressional Art Competition
Winning Artwork Will Be Displayed in U.S. Capitol for One Year
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today announced the 2020 Congressional Art Competition and invited high school students throughout Indiana’s 2nd District to submit their original artwork by April 7th.
“The annual Congressional Art Competition is such a great opportunity for Hoosiers to celebrate the talents of young artists in our community and to help them take their passion to the next level,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “I can’t wait to see the enthusiasm and skill of this year’s artists, and I encourage all interested high school students in the 2nd District to submit their work and share their creativity with their fellow Hoosiers and other artists across the country.”
“Benevolence of the Beast,” by John Glenn High School student Salem Slater, won the 2019 Congressional Art Competition for Indiana’s 2nd District.
The winning submission will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year alongside winning artwork from other congressional districts nationwide. The deadline for entering the 2020 Congressional Art Competition is Tuesday, April 7th. Information about submitting artwork, including guidelines and key dates, can be found at walorski.house.gov/art.
Each spring, members of Congress sponsor a nationwide high school arts competition. The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent across the nation, including in Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District. Since the contest began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have been involved.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
