The 2009 Congressional Art Competition is underway

Every year, high schools throughout the 9th district are invited to take part in the annual Congressional Art Competition. This unique event provides Members of Congress with the opportunity to showcase the diverse artistic talents of high school students throughout their congressional districts. For this year’s competition, the congressman is partnering with Juniata College to showcase the 9th district’s entries.

The art will be showcased from March 20th to April 10th in the lobby of the Suzanne von Liebig Theatre located in the Halbritter Center at Juniata College. The winning student will be invited to attend a Congressional Art Competition Reception in Washington, DC on June 24th and their winning entry will be showcased in the Capitol Complex.

Every year, the art showcased in the competition gets better and better. The artists who take part in this competition are truly talented and a visit to the gallery won't disappoint.
