Savannah high school & home school artists invited to submit work to High School Congressional Exhibition

U.S. Congressional High School Art Exhibition Savannah home school artists

The Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus Department of Art is proud to host An Artistic Discovery, the United States Congressional High School Art Exhibition for Georgia’s First Congressional District in the Armstrong Fine Arts Gallery.

Works submitted for the exhibition are eligible for a number of cash awards, as well as the prestigious US District Congressional Award.

The Congressional Art Competition is held annually and is a unique opportunity in which a U.S. Congressman or Congresswoman is able to showcase the artistic talents of high school students within his/her district, thereby acknowledging the nation’s gifted young artists. The winning entries from each district are prominently displayed in the Cannon Tunnel in Washington, D.C. The Cannon Tunnel connects the Cannon House Office Building with the U.S. Capitol and is traveled on a daily basis by congressmen, as well as their staff members.

This year’s exhibition will be on display at the Armstrong Fine Arts Gallery from Feb. 18 through March 3, 2019. The awards ceremony and closing reception is scheduled for Sun. March 3, beginning at 2PM. The winning Congressional work will represent the 1st Congressional district in an exhibition in Washington, D.C. for one year.

All high schools and home school students in Georgia’s 1st United States Congressional District are eligible to submit up to 14 student works per art teacher or two works per student in home schools. Each student is allowed no more than two entries. If a school has more than one art teacher, each art teacher may submit up to 14 works.

Entries will be submitted digitally and juried without delivering the actual work to the university gallery. The art teacher(s) from schools wishing to participate and parents of homeschool students will submit works online.

The deadline for entries is Tues. Jan. 22, 2019 at 11:59PM.

Jurying will take place during the week and notification of works accepted will be given to teachers or homeschool parents by email.
