It’s time for the annual congressional art competition for high school students.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, releases these guidelines for students in the 6th District:
Congressman Bob Goodlatte announced that he is once again sponsoring the Congressional Art Competition for high school students throughout Virginia’s Sixth Congressional District. After conducting competitions in each Congressional district across the nation, the winning artwork from each district is displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol.
“The Congressional Art Competition is a great opportunity for students from Front Royal to Roanoke to Central Virginia and the highlands of Monterey to showcase their talent in a national forum,” said Congressman Goodlatte. “I know we have many students in the Sixth District who excel in art, and I look forward to reviewing this year’s submissions. I encourage you to pass this information along to anyone you know who may be interested.”
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students who reside in the Sixth Congressional District. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, April 24th. The format for the Congressional Art Competition is as follows:
a. Students or instructors may deliver their artwork in-person to one of Congressman Goodlatte’s Sixth District offices located in Roanoke, Lynchburg, Staunton, and Harrisonburg.
b. Students or instructors may also arrange for a member of Congressman Goodlatte’s district staff to pick up the artwork at a designated location.
c. Students or instructors may take a digital photograph(s) of the artwork and send it to Congressman Goodlatte’s Staff Assistant, Chrissi Lee, at Chrissi.Lee@mail.house.gov.
