Please join me for this year's Congressional Art Competition on Saturday, May 16 at Sussex County Community College, from 10:00am to noon.
I have been collecting submissions from fifth district high school students for the competition, and this Saturday, we will showcase all of their submissions and announce this year's winners.
The Congressional Art Competition showcases paintings, drawings, collages, and prints submitted by high school artists. A panel of local judges will determine the best artwork and I will announce the winners at an awards ceremony following the reception. This is a great opportunity to view the work of local students and support their creative efforts.
The first place winner will have his or her piece displayed for a year in the U.S. Capitol Complex, along with other winning pieces from around the country. The second place piece of artwork will be displayed for a year in my Washington, D.C. office and the third and fourth place pieces will be showcased in my district offices.
The response from area high school students has been simply outstanding. I am proud to have my office participate in this competition every year, and so pleased to recognize the efforts of student artists in our community.
Member of Congress
