— I am pleased to announce the application process for the annual Congressional Art Contest has begun. The contest, sponsored by Congressional Arts Caucus, is an exciting opportunity for high school students who are interested in art. 

The winning selection will have his or her artwork displayed for a year in the United States Capitol building, where it will be seen by the hundreds of thousands of people who visit the nation’s capitol each year. The winning artist also will receive a trip to Washington, D.C., to participate in the Congressional Art Competition’s ribbon cutting ceremony on June 17.

I would like to strongly encourage all high school students in the 3rd Congressional District to participate. To enter, students must be attending a high school in this district. 

Along with your application, you must deliver your artwork to one of the designated drop-off locations by noon April 20. 

To get a complete list of locations or for more information, contact Lynne Hill in my Canadian County office at (405) 373-1958. The winner will be announced later that month. 

For a complete set of guidelines for the contest, I would like to encourage you to go to my Web site at www.house.gov/lucas/art-competition.shtml. There, you can download the necessary application and learn more about the competition.

In addition to the Congressional Art Contest, my office provides numerous other constituent services. These can range from internships in my D.C. office to setting up tours in Washington, D.C. 

For a complete list of the services my office can provide, go to www.house.gov/lucas, and select “Constituent Services.”
