Dear High School Art Department:

It's that time of year again! The Twenty-second Annual Congressional High School Art Competition and National Exhibition, "An Artistic Discovery", is being launched in the Fourth Congressional District. This is an excellent opportunity for high school students to show their talent and abilities as they compete to have their artwork chosen to be displayed in Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol complex to represent Oklahoma's Fourth Congressional District.

Teachers, please pass the enclosed information along to all of your students and give them the opportunity to participate in this competition. Please announce this event in your classroom, provide copies of the information enclosed and give your students a chance to compete to have their artwork selected to be displayed in Washington, D.C.. We are hoping for a great showing of Fourth District Talent in this competition.

The enclosed packet of information about the competition includes guidelines and forms. We have sent a press release to all of the newspapers in the Fourth Congressional District. You can access all of this information by going to the home page of the Sponsor of the event, Congresswoman Darlene Hooley, at www.house.gov/hooley/artguidelines.html.

We have established Thursday, May 1st, 2003 as the deadline for entry. This deadline gives us plenty of time to hold the competition, select a winner, and send all of the necessary information to Washington, D.C. before the deadline set by Congresswoman Hooley=s office, who is in charge of coordinating the event with other Members of Congress.
