Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) announced the 2017 Congressional Art Competition today:
“I am grateful to announce that the office is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition. For 35 years now, the inspiring art from students across the country have decorated the U.S. Capitol—showcasing the incredible talent in every Congressional District.
“South Carolina’s Second Congressional District is home to so many incredible young artists. I encourage all high school students to participate and I look forward to seeing the entries.”
Wilson is a senior member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce and is a member of the Congressional Arts Caucus. He served as chairman of the Congressional Art Competition last year.
Entries for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition are due to Congressman Wilson’s district offices in the Midlands or Aiken-Barnwell by close of business on May 1, 2017.
