This week, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced his office is now accepting entries for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition. High school students from across the Fifth Congressional District have until April 26 to submit their artwork for consideration. This annual competition showcases the artistic talents and ability of students in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. All winning pieces are displayed in the United States Capitol. “The Congressional Art Competition gives our students the opportunity to showcase their work on the national stage,” said Thompson. “I strongly encourage all of our students to submit their work.”

A panel of judges will select the winning entry from each county in our district. The grand prize winner will be chosen from those finalists, and that winner will be announced in early May.
The guidelines for the Congressional Art Competition are as follows:
Each entry must be original in concept, design, and execution and may not violate U.S. copy right laws
Any entry that has been copied from an existing photo or image (including a painting, graphic, or advertisement) that was created by someone other than the student is a violation of the competition rules and will not be accepted.
