The deadline is approaching for all high school-aged students who live or attend school in Washington’s Second Congressional District to showcase their artistic talents in the 2022 Congressional Art Competition. Art submissions and forms are due to Congressman Rep. Rick Larsen’s office by Monday, May 2 at 5 p.m.
Accepted mediums include drawings, paintings, photography, computer-generated art, prints, collages and mixed media. All art entries must be original in concept, design and execution.
The competition is open to all high school students (grades 9-12) who live or attend school in the Second District; students can check whether they are Second District residents or attend school in the district here.
Interested students can find details and a full list of contest rules on Larsen’s website.
The winning entry will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The winning student artist and one guardian will also be flown to Washington, D.C. to be recognized at an award ceremony at a date to be determined. The U.S. House of Representatives holds the annual high school visual art competition to encourage and recognize artistic talent in each congressional district.
Entry forms must be signed by the student, a parent or guardian, and a school faculty member. Students needing assistance in delivering their artwork to Larsen’s office can call Kevin Phan at 425-252-3188.
Signed forms can also be mailed or delivered with artwork to Larsen’s Everett office:
