FLEMINGTON, N.J. – Congressman Leonard Lance today announced he is inviting high school students in the Seventh Congressional District to participate in the 2016 Congressional Art Contest.    

 “Every year the Congressional Art Contest grows with greater participation showcasing the incredible work and creativity of New Jersey students. Last year’s contest saw over 70 original pieces.  I look forward to the talent and hard work that will go into this year’s contest and I urge all interested young artists to participate,” said Lance, the current Republican Chair of the Congressional Arts Caucus and Congressional Humanities Caucus and past chair of the annual national contest.

 Lance’s contest is free and open to all high school students in grades 9 through 12 who reside in the Seventh Congressional District of New Jersey. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution.

The Congressional Art Contest began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since that time more than 650,000 high school students have been involved in the competition. The winning art work will hang in a corridor in the United States Capitol Building for one year along with art from similar art contests held in congressional districts across the country. The winner will have the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. and see the art on display during a special ceremony. 

All entries must be submitted to Lance’s Flemington or Westfield district office no later than Friday, April 1. Entries will then be formally displayed in a public ceremony on Saturday, April 16, at Merck’s Kenilworth facility, located at 2000 Galloping Hill Road, Kenilworth, N.J. 07033.

Students who would like to participate should contact Ben Colalillo in Lance’s Flemington office for further details at 908-788-6900 or visit Lance's website.
