From the Office of Congressman Andy Harris:
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. officially announces the participation of Maryland’s First Congressional District in the 2013 Congressional Art Competition. Each spring, the House of Representatives sponsors an art competition that recognizes the artistic talent of high school students in each congressional district throughout the country.
“The Congressional Art Competition is an extraordinary opportunity to reward the talent and creativity of high school students in Maryland’s First Congressional District,” Harris said. “I’m glad to be participating again this year because I think it’s a great way to recognize the talents of our students.”
The competition is open to all high school students from Maryland’s 1st Congressional District. Each district will select one winner and that student will have the opportunity to display their artwork for one year in the U.S. Capitol building alongside the work of other contest winners from around the country.
The Congressional Art Competition is an important opportunity to encourage and recognize artistic talent throughout the nation. Since its inception in 1982, over 650,000 high school students have submitted entries to the competition.
Artwork must be either hand delivered or postmarked by April 17, 2013 to Congressman Harris’ Kent Island District Office. For complete information, please visit http://harris.house.gov/serving-you/art-competition.
