Montana high school students invited to participate in Congressional Art Competition
BOZEMAN — Congressman Greg Gianforte today invited high school students in Montana to participate in the 2018 Congressional Art Competition.
“This year’s Congressional Art Competition provides Montana’s high school students an opportunity to showcase their artistic talents. The winning submission will be hung in the U.S. Capitol where hundreds of thousands of visitors can see the artwork of one of Montana’s most talented young artists,” Gianforte said. “It will also be one of my reminders of home.”
The 2018 Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students in Montana. Participants must photograph and email their artwork to: Montana.Art@mail.house.gov. Entries must be received by Friday, April 27. Only one submission per student is allowed.
The winning student will have his or her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. The winner also will receive two free airline tickets to Washington, D.C. to attend the exhibit opening in June.
Each spring, members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor a nationwide high school visual art competition. The competition recognizes and encourages artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district.
