High school-aged students in the Second Congressional District can showcase their artistic talents in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.
 
The U.S. House of Representatives holds the nationwide high school visual art competition to encourage and recognize artistic talent in each congressional district.
 
The winning entry is displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol, and the winning artist receives two round-trip plane tickets to Washington, D.C.
 
Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) said 30 or so young artists in Washington state entered the contest in 2016, and he’s hoping more students will enter this year.
 
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all students in grades 9-12. The student, a parent or guardian and a school faculty member must sign the entry forms. All entries must be original in concept, design and execution.
 
Forms and art submissions are due by Friday, April 28. Participants will be honored and the winner will be announced at a reception on May 6.
 
Contest and entry details and information for Congressional District 2 are available on Larsen’s website or by calling his Everett office at 425-252-3188.
