Rep. Dave Joyce invites students to enter Congressional Art Contest

WASHINGTON — Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH) is inviting high school students in Ohio’s 14th district to submit art work for this year’s Congressional Art Comp-etition. Joyce released the following statement:

“The Congressional Art Competition is a great way for Northeast Ohio students to show the rest of the country just how talented they are. I look forward to seeing all of the submissions and bringing the winner to Washington for a ribbon cutting ceremony. I encourage all students in the district to show off their talent and submit their art work.”

The Congressional Art Competition was started in 1982 as a way for students in each congressional district to showcase their abilities. The winning piece will hang in the U.S. Capitol for one year and the student with the winning entry will be invited to a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception in Washington, D.C.  The ceremony is set to take place the last week in June.  The second place winning entry will hang in Rep. Joyce’s Washington D.C. office for one year.  The third place piece will hang in the Painesville District office and fourth place in the Twinsburg office both for one year.  A panel of district artists will select the winning entries.

The deadline line for submitting artwork is May 2. Students can drop off their art in one of two locations: 1 Victoria Place, Room 320 Painesville, Ohio 44077 or Twinsburg Government Center, 10075 Ravenna Road Twinsburg, Ohio 44087.

Students are also encouraged to visit joyce.house.gov to fill out appropriate paperwork.
