WASHINGTON – Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) today announced that he will be accepting submissions for the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. High school students residing in the 10th Congressional District are encouraged to participate by submitting original artwork. The winning piece of artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol.
“Last year we saw some truly incredible pieces of artwork come from high schoolers across the Valley,” said Rep. Harder. “I can’t wait to see what masterpieces our student artists will churn out this year.”
Every spring, the Congressional Institute, in concert with local members of Congress, sponsors the Congressional Art Competition, which gives local high school students a chance to compete for the honor of having their work displayed on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC. Since 1982, over 650,000 students have competed. The winning piece of artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol, the runner up will be displayed in Rep. Harder’s Washington, D.C. office, and the third place in his Modesto office.
Submissions are due no later than April 28, 2020. Information on rules can be found here. If those interested in applying have further questions, they should call Rep. Harder’s Modesto office at 209-579-5458.
