Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
NATA facilitates and juries the Nebraska District 2 and 3 local level competition. For information go to the NATA website to find your submission information. Entries are due March 15th to Debbie Kippley. Bellevue is now in district 1, so please submit your work to Jeff Fortenbury's office.
