High school art students are invited to send submissions to the annual Congressional Art Competition.

The contest started in 1982 as a way to recognize and encourage artistic talent in American students.

The winning student will be invited to Washington, D.C., for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and will have his or her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.

The second-place entry will be on display in the Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers' Spokane office.

The winner of the competition will also receive two airline tickets from Southwest Airlines to Washington, D.C., to see the artwork displayed at the capitol.

Students are encouraged to submit various styles and types of art, ranging from paintings and drawings to photography and mixed media pieces.

The deadline for submission is April 23. For more information, email Kristy.Sauer@mail.house.gov.
