Students attending a high school (public, private or homeschool) in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District are eligible to participate in the contest.

“Every year I enjoy seeing all of the wonderful entries that reflect our unique culture in the Third District,” said Congressman Lucas. “We are home to several incredibly talented young artists who deserve the opportunity to share their creativity with the rest of the country. As your representative, I am excited to help make this possible by hosting the annual Congressional Art Competition.”
