Hensarling announces 2017 congressional art competition

Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-5) is inviting high school students across the Fifth Congressional District to participate in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.

“Each year, this exciting competition provides Members of Congress the opportunity to showcase the artistic talent of high school students within their districts and acknowledge our nation’s gifted, young artists,” said Hensarling. “I am pleased to announce that the Fifth Congressional District is once again participating in the competition, and I look forward to seeing the artwork that our talented students submit.”

As in years past, the winning entry from each congressional district will be displayed in a special exhibit located in a corridor of the U.S. Capitol building. The winning student and a guest will be invited to attend a special reception unveiling the artwork in Washington, D.C.

Teachers and students wishing to participate in this year’s competition should contact Congressman Hensarling’s office at 214- 349-9996 for official contest dates, rules, and guidelines. Artwork must be submitted no later than Wednesday, May 3, 2017, to be considered.
