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 2013 Congressional Art Competition is open to all ninth- through 12th-graders who either live or go to school in the state's 3rd Congressional District.

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

Students who come in second and third will have their artwork displayed in U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler's office throughout next year.

Send digital photos of entries to jhb.cac@gmail.com by April 11. Questions can be directed to Herrera Beutler's office at 360-695-6292.
