Congressional Art Competition

An announcement from the Office of U.S. Congresswoman Elaine Luria

Dear Friend,

I am pleased to announce our office is hosting its third annual Congressional Art Competition for Virginia’s Second District.

The Congressional Art Competition is an annual non-partisan competition for high school students. Participants will have the opportunity to show their artistic talents to the nation with a chance to have their work hung in the Capitol. Since 1982 the competition has encouraged students to participate and showcase the importance of art in our culture, history, and society. All high school students from Virginia’s Second District are encouraged to send submissions to my office by April 23. For rules and details on how to send your submission, please {visit the Congressional Art Competition webpage}

A panel of three judges representing the Eastern Shore, the Peninsula, and the Southside will choose the winners. The winner’s artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year, while the regional winners’ artwork will be displayed in my district offices.

I am looking forward to hosting our third annual Congressional Art Competition after seeing the impressive submissions from last year’s competition. I am always honored to showcase the talent of students from Coastal Virginia. Investing in the arts is critical for our next generation, and I encourage students to reach out to our office to learn how to get involved. 

Please know that my team and I stand ready to help our community during this time of need. For resources to help you and your family navigate through COVID-19, please visit our website. Please feel free to reach out to our offices via the phone numbers below if you have any questions.
