Congressman Chuck Fleischmann invites high school students from Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District to participate in the 2016 Congressional Art Competition.
The Art Competition is held annually to recognize the artistic talents of the country’s high school students. The main goal is to support and foster creativity among America’s youth. The winner of the art competition will have their artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. Also, the winner will be awarded a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend a reception and see their artwork hung inside the U.S. Capitol.
The competition is open to all high school students who live in Congressman Fleischmann’s District. All submitted entries must be original in concept, design, and implementation. The artwork must be submitted to one of Congressman Fleischmann’s three District offices by April 20. No late entries will be accepted.
The public is invited to attend the Public Display and Art Exhibition that will be held at Chattanooga State Community College on April 25 – May 1 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Note that weekend times may vary. Additionally there will be a District Awards Ceremony and Reception, Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m. in the same location.
