Congressional Art Competition

The Congressional Art Competition was founded in 1982 by Members of Congress to allow high school students in each of the 435 United States Congressional Districts to showcase their artistic abilities.  

A long time tradition, the Congressional Art Competition is a fantastic way to for high school students in Northeast Ohio to show the rest of the country the talent they bring to the table. I am eager to see all of the submissions and look forward to hosting the winner in Washington for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The winner’s piece will hang in the U.S. Capitol and I will look proudly at it every time I enter the Capitol to cast a vote. I hope all high school students in the district will take advantage of this opportunity and put forth a submission to show their talent.

The winning artwork from our district will hang in our nation’s capitol for one year. The student with the winning entry will be invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception in Washington, D.C. in June.

  • The winning piece of art from my Congressional district will hang in the U.S. Capitol for one year. 
  • The student with the winning entry will be invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception in Washington, D.C. 
  • The second place winning entry will hang in my Washington D.C. office for one year, the third place piece will hang in my Mentor office, and fourth place winner in the Twinsburg office both for one year. 

Keeping the health and safety of students in mind, my office has decided to make this year's competition virtual. This will allow students to email a high-quality photo of their artwork along with their release form instead of having to drop off artwork at one of my district offices. Please note that the Student Release Form does still require the signature of the applicant's art teacher. Due to the closures of schools, if you are unable to get this signature, please have your teacher indicate their support in another way, such as emailing my office to certify the artowrk's orginality.

The deadline for submitting artwork for this year's competition is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 22, 2020.

Each student is permitted to enter up to four entries. Please email all entries to

Guidelines and entry forms can be found here.

All submissions must include a completed Student Information & Release form, which can be found here.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Katie at my Mentor office at 440-352-3939.
