Office of Rep. Marilyn Strickland announcement.
Congresswoman Marilyn Strickland (WA-10) announced that her office will begin accepting submissions for the 2022 Congressional Art Competition, marking the second year of her office’s participation. This national competition is an opportunity to recognize, honor, and encourage young artistic talent across the nation.
“The Congressional Art Competition allows students to showcase their artistic talent and represent the South Sound through their work,” said Strickland. “Last year, I was moved by the stories told by the artwork submitted from students across Washington’s 10th Congressional District and I encourage all interested high school students to take part this year.”
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students living in Washington’s 10th Congressional District. The winning artwork of the district’s competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol and the artist will be recognized at the Congressional Institute virtual reception. The exhibit in Washington will include the winning artwork from all participating districts from around the country. The winning artwork is also featured on the House’s Congressional Art Competition page.
The following is a summary of the Congressional Art Competition rules:
Submitted artwork must be original in concept, design, and execution. Artwork entered in the contest may be up to 26 inches by 26 inches, may be up to 4 inches in-depth, and not weigh more than 15 pounds. Artwork is due by Friday, April 15th, 2022.
