2016 Congressional Art Competition

HOT SPRINGS – The office of Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) is accepting submissions from Fourth District high school students for the 2016 Congressional Art Competition through Friday, April 15.

The Congressional Art Competition, established in 1982, enables high school students to showcase their artistic ability in the Cannon Tunnel that connects the House office building complex to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Each year, more than three million people view this gallery as they walk through the Cannon Tunnel.

Entries to the Congressional Art Competition should be submitted no later than Friday, April 15, to Westerman’s Fourth District office at 101 Reserve St. Ste. 200, Hot Springs, AR 71901. Entries may be submitted in person during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday) or by mail.

Winners will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C., where they will attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony and may be eligible for a scholarship to one of the leading colleges in art and design in the United States.
