The 2017 District 11 Congressional Art Competition is now open to entrants. I am inviting all high school-age students from NJ 11, which includes 54 municipalities in Morris, Essex, Passaic and Sussex counties, to participate.
Each year, the students from my Congressional District display exceptional artistic talent at my Congressional Art Competition. I am excited to review the submissions this year.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
The 2016 winner, “Chrome Still-Life,” by Jane Lee of Wayne Valley High School has been displayed in the Capitol over the past several months.
The deadline for art submissions is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19 to my Morristown office: 30 Schuyler Place, Morristown NJ, 07960.
Specific information and guidelines can be found at http://www.house.gov/content/educate/art_competition/.
