Congressman Perry Announces High School Art Competition
YORK, PA – U.S Representative Scott Perry (PA-4) is pleased to invite all high school students from Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District to participate in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition. Initiated by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982, the event is a nationwide annual art competition that allows high school students from all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories to showcase their artistic ability.
The winning piece of art from each Congressional district is displayed in an eleven month exhibit in the Cannon tunnel that leads into the U.S. Capitol. The winning artist will also receive a $3,000 renewable admission scholarship to The Savannah College of Art and Design. Additionally, the winner and a guest will be invited to attend a reception in Washington D.C., where they will be escorted on a tour of the U.S. Capitol.
Judging is performed by members of the local art community. While the official guidelines require that each submitted piece of artwork be framed, the 4th Congressional District’s competition will only require that the winning entry be framed. Submissions will be accepted in Congressman Perry’s Gettysburg, Wormleysburg and York County District offices through April 14, 2017.
Further information about the program, including guidelines and student release forms that are required in order to participate in the 2017 competition, can be found on Congressman Perry’s website: http://perry.house.gov/constituent-services/arts-competition.htm. Interested applicants can also direct any questions to Donna Austin at (717) 600-1919.
Residents of the 4th District are welcome to contact Congressman Perry and his staff at any of the offices or via Perry.House.Gov, where they can sign up for e-mail updates and for his Facebook, Twitter and YouTube page.
