U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) is now accepting submissions for her 2019 Congressional Art Competition. Students grades 9 through 12 must submit two-dimensional pieces, such as paintings, photos, drawings, collages, and digital-art, to her District Office no later than April 16th for consideration. The grand prize winner will receive a complimentary trip to Washington, D.C. to represent Ohio’s Third Congressional District at the national Congressional Art Competition and the winning piece will be displayed in the US Capitol for the next year.
“The Congressional Art Competition is a phenomenal occasion for the students of Central Ohio to showcase their unique abilities and perspectives in a creative setting,” Beatty said. “This event is a highlight for me every year, and I cannot wait to see all of this year’s wonderful pieces of art.”
Congresswoman Beatty will also announce the “People’s Choice” award for the artwork that receives the most “Likes” on Facebook. So, please be sure to visit Beatty’s Facebook page to vote for your favorite piece from April 17th to May 1st.
