Art Competition

Each spring, the Congressional Institute hosts a nationwide visual art competition to showcase the remarkable talent of high school artists across the country. Since 1982, the competition has served as a celebration of artistic expression and national unity, with one winning entry from each congressional district displayed in a gallery in the U.S. Capitol for one year. 


As always, the student artists in our community created some outstanding pieces, and we need your help in selecting one for display in our Washington DC office this year. We'll use ranked choice voting to select the 2021 People's Choice Award, so check out the extraordinary works and get your vote in by Friday, May 7th:
