Young artists from Arizona’s ninth congressional district are encouraged to showcase their artwork and compete in the 2019 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. Finalists’ work will be displayed in Stanton’s district office.
The entry deadline for the 2019 competition has passed. Information about this year's winner is available here.
For questions, please call the Rep. Stanton’s district office at (602) 956-2463.
