Congressional Art Competition 2021
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent throughout the nation. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated in representing all congressional districts.
I am proud to have the opportunity to select a new student to represent California’s 35th Congressional District, which includes Bloomington, Chino, Montclair, Ontario, Pomona, and portions of Fontana (South of Interstate 210) and Rialto (South of Foothill Boulevard). The culmination of the competition will be the year-long display of the winning artwork in the U.S. Capitol Complex. You do not need to be an art student to enter or to win. There is no fee to enter or participate.
1) High school students must reside in California's 35th Congressional District.
2) Deadline to submit: 5:00pm PST, Friday, April 16
4) Vote for your art on Facebook: All artwork will be posted on April 26. Contestants with the MOST likes by April 29 at 5pm PST will be determined the winner.
Note: Previous Art Competition winners are not eligible to be chosen a second time.
Announcement of the 2021 winner will be posted on April 30
