(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Representative Trey Hollingsworth (IN-09) invites all high school students who are residents of Indiana’s Ninth Congressional District to enter the 2019 Congressional Art Competition. The winner will have his or her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year.
“I look forward to students from across the Ninth District submitting their artwork for the chance to represent our Hoosier community in the halls of the U.S. Capitol,” said Representative Hollingsworth.
Students may submit their original, two-dimensional artwork to Representative Hollingsworth’s district offices in Jeffersonville or Franklin for the contest. Local artists and individuals from across the District will judge the competition. The judges’ scores will be worth 80 percent of the overall score with the number of “Likes” each submission receives on Facebook representing the other 20 percent.
Last year’s first places winner was Olivia K. from New Albany. This is her artwork.
To be considered in the competition, students must hand-deliver or mail a flash-drive with a high-resolution photo of their entry along with typed student release forms to Representative Hollingsworth’s Jeffersonville or Franklin offices no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, April 15.
