Congressional Art Competition goes digital this year

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Rep. Brett Guthrie announced the beginning of the 2020 Second District Congressional Art Competition on Thursday, which will be held digitally this year to protect students, parents, and faculty from the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

The Congressional Art Competition is an annual high school art contest held by each of the U.S. House of Representatives in their respective congressional districts.

All high school students (grades 9-12) are encouraged to submit artwork for the competition. Artwork and application materials should be submitted digitally to by April 28, 2020.

The winner and finalists will be selected by an independent panel of art professors from colleges and universities across Kentucky’s Second District. The winning artwork will hang in the U.S. Capitol for the rest of the year.

Additionally, Congressman Guthrie will hold a “Facebook Favorite” competition to give members of the general public the opportunity to vote for their favorite entries. Artwork will be posted on his official Facebook page, and the winning piece will be displayed in Congressman Guthrie’s Bowling Green District Office. The online competition will be held May 4-7, 2020.

Winners of the Congressional Art Competition will be announced on May 8, 2020.
