Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Joe Wilson released the following statement encouraging students from South Carolina’s Second District to enter the Congressional Art Competition:
“I am grateful to announce that my office is now accepting submissions for the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. For the past 38 years, this competition has inspired and encouraged young artists and I look forward to seeing this tradition continue.”
Each year, members of the U.S. House of Representatives participate in a nation-wide high school arts competition sponsored by the Congressional Institute.
This annual competition invites high school students in South Carolina’s Second District to submit original works of art for a chance to have the artwork displayed in the United States Capitol for one year. Artwork should represent this year’s theme, The Palmetto State: Capturing the Spirit of South Carolina. Additionally, the winning artist will receive a trip to Washington, D.C. and a $3,000 scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design.
All submissions must be delivered to Congressman Wilson’s district offices in the Midlands or Aiken-Barnwell by close of business May 1, 2020.
For more information please visit the art competition information page on Congressman Wilson’s website and if you have any questions please contact Sam Orr in the Midlands office (803) 939-0041 or at email@example.com.
