The Congressional Arts Competition is a nationwide high school arts competition. It’s an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent across the country. High school students are eligible to participate and the winner from each Congressional district will have his or her artwork displayed in the Capital Building in Washington, D.C.

The contest began in 1982 and since then, over 650,000 students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
