Students Invited To Enter 2017 Congressional Art Competition
April 7, 2017
Washington, D.C. – The office of Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) is now accepting entries for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.
Each spring, the U.S. House of Representatives sponsors An Artistic Discovery, a nationwide competition for high school students interested in the arts and looking for an opportunity to showcase their creativity. The annual contest recognizes and encourages artistic talent of young constituents across the nation, including those living in Oklahoma’s Fourth Congressional District.
After the Fourth District winner has been announced, the student’s artwork will be displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. In addition, the winning prize includes travel to Washington with a guest for a reception and award presentation, courtesy of Southwest Airlines. The Fourth District winner also becomes eligible to receive a $3,000 scholarship to the Savannah College of Art & Design or Tennessee Wesleyan University if he or she enrolls at either institution.
All entries are accepted at one of Congressman Cole’s district offices or the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. Those locations are listed below:
