Congressional High School Art Competition

Each spring, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, committed to the importance of our cultural heritage, join together to recognize the creative spirit of American high school students in a nationwide art competition. The Congressional High School Art Competition is implemented by the Members in the Congressional Districts and features paintings, drawings, and prints. Each Member brings a winning entry back to Washington, D.C. to be displayed in the corridor of the U.S. Capital. Launched in 1982, this nationwide event has produced thousands of local competitions, yielding more than 500,000 high school winners.

This competition is coordinated locally through Fourth District U.S. Representative David Price's office. High school visual art students in the counties of Alamance, Cumberland, Orange, Durham and Wake are eligible to apply.

The Orange County Arts Commission, the Durham Arts Council, the Alamance County Arts Council, and United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County work together to make this fourth district competition a success.

If you are a current high school visual art student in Orange County and would like to participate in the 2013 Congressional High School Art Competition, contact your high school art teacher or the Orange County Arts Commission for an application form and guidelines. Orange County visual art students should bring their entries to the OCAC office at 501 W. Franklin Street, Chapel Hill, NC 27516 by 5 pm on Friday, April 11, 2014.
