Artistically inclined high school students are invited to enter a competition to have their work recognized at the U.S. Capitol.

The 2022 Congressional Art Competition is open to students, grades nine to 12, who attend school in the 3rd Congressional District.

The winner will have their artwork exhibited in the U.S. Capitol for one year, and the second and third place winners’ art can be displayed in Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler’s congressional office. A panel of judges from counties within the 3rd District will evaluate the submissions.

Participants must submit a photo of their artwork and a student release form to by May 2.

Rules, regulations and student release forms can be accessed by contacting Herrera Beutler’s Vancouver office at or 360-695-6292.
