Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. All high school students of the 7th Congressional District are invited to participate in our Annual Congressional Art Competition.

In our 14th year, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the annual competition was held virtually. We were pleased to welcome art work submissions from 62 students from 8 different schools across the district. All art work submissions and top finishers can be found here.

The top few winning pieces will receive a prize and the top art piece will still be eligible to be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel of the United States Capitol building. Thank you students and teachers for helping make our annual art show a success!
