Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas is proud to announce the kick-off of the annual Congressional Art Contest. The Congressman’s participation in the contest allows a student from the Third District to display a piece of his or her artwork in the U.S. Capitol. The student will receive three plane tickets to visit Washington, D.C. for an unveiling ceremony for all the winners on June 25, 2009. In addition, he or she may be eligible for a college scholarship. Last year, Karissa Clay from Navajo High School in Blair, Oklahoma won the contest with her work entitled “Country Captivated.”
“The Congressional Art Contest is a great opportunity for students in the Third District to be honored for their outstanding achievement in art,” stated Lucas. “I am very proud of the talent shown in the previous years’ winners and look forward to selecting a student for this year’s contest.”
Final submissions must be delivered to Congressman Lucas by Tuesday, April 21, 2009. For more information, please visit /congressional-art-competition. For drop off locations or other questions, please contact Lynne Hill in Lucas’ Canadian County Office at 405-373-1958.
