High School Students Can Win Opportunity for Artwork to Hang at U.S. Capitol

Emma Fasciolo, a student at Staples High School in Westport, was the winner from Connecticut’s 4th Congressional District last year.

Attention art teachers! The U.S. Congress holds an art competition for high school students every spring, and members of Connecticut’s delegation want your students to take part.

The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual art competition held since 1982. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries.

Connecticut’s five congressmen and women host receptions for artists and their families and friends. The winning entry from every district is displayed at the U.S. Capitol for one year, and winners get to travel to D.C. for a reception.

Find out more about the contest here, and be in touch with your representative’s office for district-specific details.
