Wenstrup Invites Students to Enter 2016 Congressional Art Competition

Representative Brad Wenstrup is inviting all high school students in Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District to enter the 2016 Congressional Art Competition. The winner will have his/her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year and will receive two plane tickets to Washington, D.C. for an awards ceremony.

Students may submit their original, two-dimensional artwork to Rep. Wenstrup’s district offices in Cincinnati or Peebles for judging. A panel of three judges will determine first, second, and third place winners among the submissions, alongside a “viewer’s choice” determined by online voting. The runners-up will have their artwork displayed prominently in one of Rep. Wenstrup’s offices.

To be considered in the competition, students must hand-deliver or mail their entries along with typed student release forms to Rep. Wenstrup’s Cincinnati or Peebles district offices no later than 5:00pm on Friday, April 15th.

For a complete list of the rules and guidelines, please visit Rep. Wenstrup’s website at wenstrup.house.gov/art or call his office at (202) 225-3164.
