McHenry Announces 2021 Congressional Art Competition

Lincoln Herald Staff

Congressman Patrick McHenry has announced submission deadlines for the 2021 Congressional Art Competition. Since the competition began in 1982, over 650,000 high school students have participated in this nationwide event showcasing the talent of our nation's young artists.

“I am always honored to continue the tradition of recognizing some of the 10th District's most talented art students by hosting the Congressional Art Competition,” said Congressman McHenry. "I am especially grateful to be inviting students to compete this year after the unprecedented challenges they have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to seeing the creative and unique artwork submitted by our District students."

The "Grand Prize" winner of the 10th District's Congressional Art Competition will have their artwork prominently displayed in the US Capitol beside the winning pieces from each Congressional district. The winner will also receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, DC, to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony where they will be able to view their artwork on display for the first time.

All entries will be judged by a panel, and one winner will be selected. The deadline to submit the artwork is Monday, May 3, 2021. Artwork must be submitted to any of Congressman McHenry's district offices before the May 3rd deadline. The district office location in Hickory is at 1990 Main Ave. SE, and is open Monday-Friday 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM.

Once all artwork has been received, submissions will be posted on the Congressman's Facebook page and users can share their thoughts on the work by liking their favorites.

The Congressional Art Competition is a privately-funded competition with support from Southwest Airlines and the Congressional Institute.
