Whiteside, Carroll County students invited to enter annual Congressional Art Competition

The office of U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, is accepting submissions for his year’s Congressional Art Competition from all high school students who live in the 17th Congressional District, which includes Carroll and Whiteside counties.

The competition offers students the chance to showcase their artistic abilities and creativity.

First-place winners will have their artwork displayed in the Cannon Tunnel leading to the U.S. Capitol for a full year.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Congressional Institute was unable to host an in-person reception in 2020. If one is possible this year, the winner will be awarded two tickets to Washington, D.C., to attend the official art show opening and a subsequent reception.

The submission deadline is 5 p.m. April 30.

Artwork entered may be up to 26-by-26 inches and 4 inches deep (allow for framing if entry wins), and an original in concept, design, and execution. The medium may include: pastels, colored pencil, pencil, charcoal, ink and marker drawings; mixed media; oil, acrylics, and watercolor paintings; lithographs, silkscreen and block print collage; photography; and computer-generated art.
