Seven of Wisconsin's Eight Congressional Districts are Participating in the 2013 Congressional Art Competition: An Artistic Discovery
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
In 2013, the offices of seven of Wisconsin's Members of Congress are participating. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
