|Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the members of the U.S. House of Representatives Congressional Arts Caucus. The contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in each Congressional District.
The contest is open to all high school students (grades 9-12). The winning entry selected to represent the Second Congressional District of Kentucky will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol as part of an exhibition comprised of artwork from across the country.
The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, more than 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
