Deadline to enter art contest is May 1

Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach (MN-07) invites high school students from Minnesota’s Seventh District to participate in the annual Congressional Art Competition.

“I am excited to announce our office’s participation in the Congressional Art Competition, a longstanding U.S. Capitol tradition. This is an excellent opportunity for high school students across the district to showcase their creativity and hard work, and I am looking forward to reviewing many wonderful submissions,” said Congresswoman Fischbach.

The competition is open to all public, private, charter, and home school students in grades nine through 12. Winning submissions from each congressional district will be displayed for one year in the tunnel from the U.S. Capitol to the Cannon House Office Building, where they will be viewed by thousands of visitors, tourists, and distinguished Members of Congress. The winners will also be highlighted on Congresswoman Fischbach’s social media channels.
