Bridgeport, CT – It is my pleasure to announce the 2020 Congressional Art Competition, which opened Monday, March 9. The deadline has been extended to Thursday, May 28 at 5:00 P.M.
The winning artist will receive two roundtrip tickets to Washington D.C. to attend the competition’s announcement ceremony, and the Fourth Congressional District runners-up will have their artwork displayed in my Bridgeport and Stamford district offices. Meeting talented student artists and their families from across the district is something I look forward to each spring.
How to Enter the 2020 Congressional Art Competition
- Review the 2020 Rules for Students and Teachers.
- Complete the 2020 Student Release Form.
- Submit the Student Release Form and any other required materials to Shindler.firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, May 28.
I encourage all students in grades 9-12 who reside in or attend high school in Connecticut’s Fourth Congressional District to submit a piece of artwork to the 2020 Congressional Art Competition.
Entries will be judged by a panel of local artists and representatives of arts organizations in Southwest Connecticut. Additionally, I will hold a reception to honor this year’s participants and announce the winning entries. The winning entry from our district will be displayed for one year at the United States Capitol alongside artwork from every congressional district across the country.
