WASHINGTON, D.C. – United States Rep. Mike Rogers announced last week that the Third District Congressional art competition is officially open.
Rogers has invited all artistic high school students from across East Alabama to participate in the contest that announce its winner at a reception on Saturday, April 23, 2022.
The competition is open for students seventh through twelfth grade, and prior winners are not allowed to participate.
Artwork entered in the contest “may be up to 26 inches by 26 inches, may be up to 4 inches in depth, and not weigh more than 15 pounds framed” according to Rep. Rogers’s website.
The artwork submission type is rather open. Students can enter up to three pieces, and they can be any of the following: paintings, drawing, collages, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art, or photography.
From April 13 to April 15, the artwork can be dropped off at the Isabel Anderson Comer Museum and Arts Center in Sylacauga. If the artwork is not submitted by April 15 at 5:00 p.m. it will not be judged.
The winner’s artwork will be displayed in the Cannon tunnel of the U.S. Capitol building and on House.gov’s Congressional Art Competition page.
