One week left to go in VA-10 Congressional Art Competition
April 15 marks one week until the deadline for submissions to the Virginia-10 Congressional Art Competition. Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) invites all VA-10 high school students to submit their entries to the annual competition by the deadline at 5 p.m. on April 22.
“There’s only one week left to show off your artistic skills as part of the annual VA-10 Congressional Art Competition! The deadline to submit artwork for a chance to be featured in the U.S. Capitol is next Thursday, April 22nd,” said Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. “I have been beyond impressed by the paintings, drawings, photographs, and other designs that Virginia-10 students have submitted to this competition in past years. Our community is lucky to be home to such talented, motivated, and passionate young people.”
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students who reside or attend school in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. The winning entry will be selected by a panel of judges assembled by Congresswoman Wexton, displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol, and featured on House.gov’s Congressional Art Competition page.
A virtual gallery of all artwork submitted from Virginia’s 10th Congressional District will be unveiled in late April, and the winning piece along with honorable mentions in each category will be announced during a virtual reception on Thursday, May 6th at 7 p.m. streamed live on Congresswoman Wexton’s Facebook page .
