Congressional Art Competition

2017 Congressional Art Competition Winners from Lake Minneola High School

Each spring, a nation-wide high school art competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in each Congressional District. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.

Created in 1982, the Congressional Art Competition is a unique opportunity in which the Congressman is able to showcase the artistic talents of high school students within the 11th District.

The winning entries from each district are prominently displayed in the Cannon Tunnel in Washington, D.C. The Cannon Tunnel connects the Cannon House Office Building with the U.S. Capitol and is traveled on a daily basis by Members of Congress and their staff.


Submissions for the 2019 Congressional Art Competition are now closed.
