Womack Encourages Students to Enter 2021 Congressional Art Competition
Competition is open to all high school students in the Third District; Winning artwork to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol
Washington, DC – April 8, 2021....Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) is encouraging all Third District high schoolers to participate in the 2021 Congressional Art Competition. The nationwide contest is an opportunity for Arkansas students to showcase their artistic talents. One winning submission from each congressional district will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. Participants may submit original paintings, drawings, collages, photographs, computer-generated art, or a combination thereof.
Submission locations and due dates are as follows:
Submitted artwork will be on display April 22 – April 28 at the Center for Nonprofits at the JTL Shop in Springdale. Competition judges will review all of the pieces and determine a winner, which will be announced by Congressman Womack at an awards ceremony on April 28th. Submissions will also be considered for the People’s Choice Award, which will be decided by the public via online vote, and the Patriot Award, which honors a piece that celebrates and artfully represents American ideals.
This is the eleventh year that Womack has hosted the Congressional Art Competition. Last year’s winner was Autumn Blaylock, a senior at Fayetteville High School, for her drawing, entitled “Pandemic Prom,” which is currently displayed in the halls of the U.S. Capitol.
Interested students may contact Congressman Womack’s office at (479) 464-0446 with questions. More information about competition details can also be found here.
