Congressman Adam Kinzinger's Office has announced a second extension for entries to the Congressional Art Competition. Kinzinger announced in a statement that his office will be accepting entires for the 2020 Congressional Art Contest until June 1st.
Additionally, high school students in the 16th congressional district will now be able to submit their artwork online by emailing a photo and video of their artwork to Adam.Kinzinger@Mail.House.Gov with the subject line “2020 CAC – IL16 Entry.”
Students who are able to drop off their work in person at Kinzinger's Ottawa office can still do so, but should call in first. The Congressional Art Competition offers high school students from across the country a 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.
