OHHS Art and Design Students Exhibiting in the 2023 Congressional Art Competition!

Posted on: April 10, 2023 10:00 am

Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. 

This is a prestigious competition. The winning artwork will represent the 8th District in Washington, D.C., by being displayed in the U.S. Capitol as part of a year-long exhibit. The winning artist may receive free round-trip airfares for the national winners’ reception in Washington, D.C., and be eligible for a scholarship from prestigious art and design college. Other winners’ pieces will be showcased at my Washington, DC, and district offices for the next year.

This year, Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum will host the exhibition of works submitted by students in schools throughout District 8. Artwork will be on display from April 19th through 23rd, with an Awards Reception taking place on April 22nd.

Congratulations and best of luck to this year’s OHHS Art and Design students who were encouraged by Ms. Schorsch to submit work for this year’s competition! Stay tuned for information regarding competition results!
