High school students sought for art contest



Southwest Washington high school students are invited to compete for a chance to have their artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

The 2012 Congressional Art Competition is open to all ninth- through 12th-grade students who either live or go to school in the state’s 3rd Congressional District.

Winners from each district will have artwork displayed in the Capitol for a year, and receive free airfare for two to a June ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Students who come in second and third in the 3rd District contest will have their artwork displayed in U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler’s office throughout the next year.

Send digital photos of entries by email to jhb.cac@gmail.com by April 6. Questions can be directed to her office at 360-695-6292.

Details and guidelines for entries are available at Congressional Art Competition.
