Announcing the 2014 Congressional Art Competition

Feb 21, 2014
Frankly Speaking

Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District is home to many talented young artists who deserve the chance to show their artistic skills to the world. As your Representative, I am always excited to help make this possible by hosting the annual Congressional Art Competition.

The application process for the 2014 art contest has begun, and I am encouraging high school students from the Third District to participate. To enter, students can visit my web site at www.lucas.house.gov/serving-you/art-competition. On this page, they 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 (public, private, or homeschooled) in the Third District.  Along with the application, students must deliver their artwork to one of the designated drop-off locations by close of business on Wednesday, April 16, 2014.  

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. I always enjoy walking through the corridor from my office to the Capitol and seeing all the students’ amazing works of art displayed. Additionally, the winner will receive two plane tickets to visit Washington D.C. for an unveiling ceremony for all the winners this summer.

It is my hope that many students will enter this year’s competition, and I look forward to seeing the entries. 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.
