Students invited to participate in Congressional Art Competition for Third District

Rep. Dan Lipinski, IL-3, is inviting high school students from the 3rd Congressional District to participate in the 2020 Congressional Art Competition.

The winning piece will be displayed in the Capitol complex in Washington, D.C. for visitors to view for the next year. The runner-up will have their artwork displayed in Rep. Lipinski’s Washington office for one year.

The competition is open to all students in grades 9 through 12 who reside in the 3rd Congressional District. Entries must be received at Rep. Lipinski’s district offices in Chicago at 6245 S. Archer Ave.; Oak Lawn at 5210 W. 95th St.; Orland Park at 14700 Ravinia Ave.; and Lockport at 222. E. 9th St., Suite 109.

Artwork, which also includes photography and computer-generated art, must be received no later than April 9.

For information, including contest guidelines and forms, visit bit.ly/2PMtYZg or call 773-948-6223.

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents.

Last year, Hanna Dworkin of Lemont was chosen as the winner from the 3rd Congressional District.

Her winning piece, “Illinois’s Pride,” currently is one of those featured on the Congressional Art Competition website at bit.ly/2PNbisb.
