Long Searching for Next Top High School Artist for Congressional Art Competition

SPRINGFIELD – U.S. Rep. Billy Long announced today Missouri’s 7th District will again be participating in the 33rd Annual Congressional Art Competition.

The art competition challenges high school students to come up with an original painting, drawing, print, collage, mixed media, computer-generated art, or photograph. The 1st place winner will have their artwork displayed in the corridor of the United States Capitol for one year as well as be invited to participate in the unveiling for the 2014 Congressional Art Competition, “An Artistic Discovery,” in Washington, D.C.

“Our participation has grown every year I have been in Congress but that does not happen by accident. My staff works extremely hard to promote this event with art teachers who in turn encourage their students to participate. It is open to all high school students in our district and I have been impressed with the artistic talents of the high school students over the years. The annual art competition provides a great venue for area high school students to showcase their skills. I cannot wait to see the quality of work produced this year and as always look forward to honoring the creativity of our local student artists,” Long said.

The Congressional Art Competition allows Members of Congress to inspire and appreciate the artistic talents of emerging artists in their congressional districts. The winning piece for Missouri’s 7th District will be selected by a panel of professional artists.

Information about the art competition was sent to district high schools last week. Participating schools should have their students bring their artwork to Rep. Long’s district office at 3232 E. Ridgeview, Springfield, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 18, 2014. Once the artwork is assembled, the panel of professional artists will choose the winner.
