An Artistic Discovery is a nation-wide high school art competition sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and is an opportunity to recognize the artistic talents of our youth. The nationwide competition involves more than 50,000 talented high school students. Acceptable entries include, but are not limited to, paintings, drawings, and photography. The first-place winners traditionally receive a scholarship and travel to Washington, D.C. to attend a Congressional Reception in July to honor of all the winners from around the nation. The first-place entry from each participating congressional district will also be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel in the United States Capitol Building for an entire year, where it will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people who visit the Capitol.
Students will be able to submit photos of their artwork via e-mail to: Va03.firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, in lieu of the in-person annual 3rd congressional district art competition awards reception, my office will launch a digital gallery of this year’s submissions on my website.
More information, including contest guidelines and required student release forms, can be found on my website at: https://bobbyscott.house.gov/artcontest.
If you have any questions regarding this year's art competition, please contact Congressman Bobby Scott's District Office at (757) 380-1000.
