Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) announced today that he invites students in grades nine through 12 to participate in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition. The winning artist will receive roundtrip tickets to attend a national reception in Washington, D.C., and his or her artwork will be on display for one year in the U.S. Capitol.
“Each Spring when Members of Congress sponsor this annual arts competition, I’m always amazed at how incredibly gifted 10th District students are,” Hice said. “Georgia has some of the most talented students in the nation, and I encourage them to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity to showcase their artwork in a national exhibit.”
Students may access the Student Information and Release Form and competition guidelines online at www.hice.house.gov/constituent-services/arts-competition.htm. All entries must be original in concept and design and should be submitted to one of the Congressman’s three district offices by Thursday, April 6th. Congressman Hice will announce the winner and present awards for the top entries Saturday, April 29 during a reception at Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts.
