About the Congressional Art Competition

Since 1982, the Congressional Institute has hosted an annual visual art competition for high school students to recognize artistic talent throughout the nation. Attracting more than 650,000 participants nationwide to date, the competition calls for submissions of paintings, drawings, collages, photographs and computer-generated art. Judging in the 18th Congressional District competition is done by an independent panel of art community members. This year’s judging panel included: Kit Coleman, Mahmut Keskekci and Linda Covello.

The winning artwork from each congressional district is exhibited for a full year at the U.S. Capitol. The winner receives two round-trip tickets to Washington D.C. for the annual awards ceremony and launch of the exhibition courtesy of Southwest Airlines. Each congressional district winner also receives a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud™, scholarship opportunities from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and other contributions from national sponsors.
