2013 Congressional Art Competition Begins

Mar 08, 2013
Frankly Speaking

I am excited to announce the kick-off of this year’s Congressional Art Competition, which is sponsored by the Congressional Art Caucus. The application process has begun and this is a great opportunity for high school students who are interested in art.

I strongly encourage all high school students in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District to participate in this year’s contest. To enter, students can visit my web site at www.lucas.house.gov/serving-you/art-competition. On this web page, you can download the necessary application, find a list of guidelines and drop-off locations, and learn more about the competition. To enter, students must be attending a high school in the Third Congressional District.  Along with your application, you must deliver your artwork to one of the designated drop-off locations by 12:00 p.m. CT on Monday, April 15, 2013. 

The winning selection will have their artwork displayed for a year in the United States Capitol Building, where it will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people who visit the Capitol each year. The winner will receive two plane tickets to visit Washington D.C. for an unveiling ceremony for all the winners this summer. He or she may also be eligible for a scholarship given by the Savannah College of Art and Design.

For more information or questions about entering the Congressional Art Competition, please feel free to contact Allison Litterell in my district office at (405) 373-1958.
