Sixteenth District Congressman Adam Kinzinger has announced the start of the 2020 Congressional Art Competition on Wednesday. As the competition celebrates its 39th year, the Office of Kinzinger will now be accepting submissions from all high school students that live in the 16th Congressional District.

In a statement, Kinzinger said each year he is amazed by the artistic talents of the young people of IL-16. He is also encouraging students to use this extra time away from classes to invest in artwork and other creative projects.

The Congressional Art Competition offers high school students from across the country the chance to showcase their artistic abilities and creativity. First-place winners will have their artwork displayed in the Cannon Tunnel leading to the Capitol for one full year. In addition, winners will be awarded two tickets to Washington, D.C. to attend the official art show opening and a subsequent reception hosted by the Congressional Institute.

The submission deadline for the competition is Friday, April 24th at 5:00pm in the Ottawa District Office. If you have any additional questions, call Kinzinger’s Ottawa District Office at (815) 431-9271.
