Calling all high school artists! It is my honor to showcase the artwork of our district's high schoolers in the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. Any student in high school is eligible to submit artwork.

Submission Deadline: March 30th

Art Show Dates:
Victoria Office: April 4th (Bastrop, Caldwell, Gonzales, Lavaca, Victoria, Jackson, Wharton, Matagorda)

Corpus Christi Office: April 5th (Refugio, Aransas, San Patricio, Nueces, Calhoun)

All qualifying submissions will be displayed locally and in public prior to the selection of the winner to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol. There will be first and second place winners, as well as two people's choice awards.

If you have any questions, please contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 225-7742 or email Carissa.Taylor@mail.house.gov.

Artwork entered in the contest may be up to 26” x 26” x 4”, including the frame.

The artwork may be:

  • Paintings - including oil, acrylics, and watercolor
  • Drawings - including pastels, colored pencil, pencil, charcoal, ink, and markers
  • Collage
  • Prints - including lithographs, silkscreen, and block prints
  • Mixed Media
  • Computer Generated Art
  • Photography

All entries must be an original in concept, design and execution. Artwork must be two-dimensional, and entries need only be matted (no frame necessary).

The winning artwork will hang in the U.S. Capitol for the entire year of the exhibition and cannot be returned to students earlier. Students should, therefore, submit artwork they will not need for other purposes.

Prizes:
1st Place: Artwork is displayed in the U.S. Capitol
2nd Place: Artwork is displayed in Congressman Cloud's Washington D.C. Office
People's Choice: Artwork is displayed in Congressman Cloud's Victoria and Corpus Christi district offices

Artwork must be submitted to one of my two district offices listed below: 

Corpus Christi
101 N. Shoreline Blvd. Suite 306
Corpus Christi, TX 78401

Victoria
111 N. Glass St.
Suite 102

Please call my Washington D.C. office at either (202) 225-7742 or email Carissa.Taylor@mail.house.gov if you need assistance.
