Young artists from Arizona’s ninth congressional district are encouraged to showcase their artwork and compete in the 2020 Congressional Arts Competition. Rep. Greg Stanton’s office launched the competition today, continuing the long-standing tradition. Since the first contest in 1982, the U.S. House of Representatives hosts the nation-wide high school arts contest each spring to recognize and promote the arts. More than 650,000 high school students have participated in the national competition.
The winner will join artists from every U.S. congressional district on a free trip to Washington, D.C., to see their work displayed in the halls of the U.S. Capitol. They will also be honored by Stanton and other members of Congress at a reception on Capitol Hill. The date for the D.C. ceremony has not yet been determined. Finalists’ work will be displayed in Stanton’s district office. Information on the 2019 winner is available here.
