Congressional Art Competition

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Congressional Art Competition, An Artistic Discovery, is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in each congressional district.

The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students. The first place winner will have their art displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The artwork of the second and third place winners of the competition will be displayed in Rep. Tiberi’s Central Ohio office for one year.

To learn more and to submit artwork to Rep. Tiberi’s office please contact and visit the House of Representative’s art completion website.
