Congressman Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael, announced the 2024 Congressional Art Competition is open for digital submissions from all high school students in California’s Second Congressional District, which spans from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.
“The Congressional Art Competition is one of the best ways to showcase the artistic skills of young people across California’s Second District, and I’m excited to announce this year’s competition is now open for digital submissions,” Rep. Huffman said. “We always have a great showing from our talented students up and down the coast, and I’m looking forward to another year of fantastic art.”
The winning artwork will be exhibited in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year alongside artwork from each Congressional District in the country. The winning student will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C. The winner will also be eligible for a scholarship to attend Savannah College of Art and Design (upon admission acceptance).
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, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
To enter the competition, students must submit a completed entry form through Congressman Huffman’s website and email a picture of their submission with their name and school to ca2artsubmission@mail.house.gov by Thursday, April 18. Participants should not mail in their entry. For more information, visit tinyurl.com/mb65xdks.
