Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) has announced the start of the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. As the competition celebrates its 39th year, the Office of Congressman Kinzinger will now be accepting submissions from all high school students that live in the 16th Congressional District.
The competition offers high school students from across the country to showcase their artistic abilities and creativity. First-place winners will have their artwork displayed in the Cannon Tunnel leading to the Capitol for one full year. In addition, winners will be awarded two tickets to Washington, D.C., to attend the official art show opening and a subsequent reception hosted by the Congressional Institute.
The submission deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, June 1. Students who are able to drop off in person can still do so but are asked to call the office ahead of time to coordinate with the staff on-site. For those unable to drop off entries or mail them, they can email a photo and video of their artwork to Adam.Kinzinger@Mail.House.Gov with the subject line “2020 CAC - IL 16 Entry.” For more information, visit kinzinger.house.gov or call 815-431-9271.
