U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman’s office is accepting art submissions from high school students in the Fourth Congressional District for the 2015 Congressional Art Competition.
The Congressional Art Competition, which began in 1982, allows high school students to showcase their artistic ability in the Cannon Tunnel that connects the House office-building complex to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Each year, more than three million people view this gallery as they walk through the Cannon Tunnel.
Entries to the Congressional Art Competition should be submitted no later than Monday, April 27, to Westerman’s Fourth District office at 101 Reserve St. Ste. 200, Hot Springs, AR 71901. Entries may be submitted in person during regular business hours from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday or by mail.
Winners will be announced during a reception at the Hot Springs Convention Center on May 5, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The convention center is located at 134 Convention Boulevard in Hot Springs. Winners will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C., where they will attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony and may be eligible for a scholarship to one of the leading colleges in art and design in the United States.
