WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) announced the start of the 2023 Congressional Art Competition for Kentucky’s Second District.
“I’m encouraging all high school students, who enjoy creating art, to participate in the 2023 Congressional Art Competition. I enjoy hosting this competition each year, and I’m always impressed with the artistic talent of students in Kentucky’s Second District. Thank you to local educators and judges for helping make this year’s Congressional Art Competition possible,” said Guthrie.
Each spring, participating U.S. Representatives host the Congressional Art Competition in their respective district. The artworks of students from Kentucky’s Second District are judged by an independent and local panel of art professors from colleges and universities. The overall winner’s artwork from Kentucky’s Second District and other districts and territories will be featured in the U.S. Capitol. The second and third place overall winners’ artworks in Kentucky’s Second District will be displayed in Congressman Guthrie’s Bowling Green District office. All overall and county winners will be posted on Congressman Guthrie’s congressional website. The Congressional Institute will announce additional information on prizes on their website.
The Congressional Art Competition for Kentucky’s Second District also includes a “Facebook Favorite” competition. All students’ submitted artwork will be posted to Congressman Guthrie’s official Facebook page for the public to vote on between April 17-21, 2023, for their favorite artworks. The “Facebook Favorite” winner’s artwork will be displayed in Congressman Guthrie’s Bowling Green District office.
The winners of the Congressional Art Competition will be announced on April 24, 2023.
