The Congressional Art Competition is currently taking place across the United States and will last until the end of April.

Each spring high school students nationwide are encouraged to submit artistic pieces of work to their local representatives, whereupon they will be entered into a national competition. The national winning piece will be selected after entries had been submitted and the winner’s work will be displayed in the U.S. Capital building for a year.

The winner will also receive two airplane tickets to fly out to D.C. in June to attend the award ceremony, as well as a $3,000 artistic scholarship for college, The MetroWest Daily News reported.

Each representative sets his or her own due dates and guidelines. Forms, information and previous winners can be found here.
