Representative Brad Wenstrup is inviting all high school students in Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District to enter the 2016 Congressional Art Competition. The winner will have his/her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year and will receive two plane tickets to Washington, D.C. for an awards ceremony.
Students may submit their original, two-dimensional artwork to Rep. Wenstrup’s district offices in Cincinnati or Peebles for judging. A panel of three judges will determine first, second, and third place winners among the submissions, alongside a “viewer’s choice” determined by online voting. The runners-up will have their artwork displayed prominently in one of Rep. Wenstrup’s offices.
To be considered in the competition, students must hand-deliver or mail their entries along with typed student release forms to Representative Wenstrup’s Cincinnati or Peebles district offices no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, April 15.
For a complete list of the rules and guidelines, please visit Rep. Wenstrup’s website at wenstrup.house.gov/art or call his office at (202) 225-3164.
