Call for 2022 Congressional Art Competition Submissions

Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN) announced the 2022 Congressional Art Competition. Started in 1982 by the U.S. House of Representatives, this annual competition highlights high school students’ artistic works from across the country.

“Art is an important aspect of a well-rounded education for our youths,” said Rep. Spartz. “I encourage interested high school students from Indiana’s Fifth Congressional District to participate in the Congressional Art Competition.”

The first-place winner’s submission will be displayed in the Cannon House Office Building tunnel, in the U.S. Capitol, along with other winners nationwide for one year. In addition, a local reception to display the winning artwork will be held by Congresswoman Spartz.

Jackson Manwell, a senior at Madison-Grant Jr/Sr High School in Fairmount, IN, won first place in last year’s competition with his work titled “Champion Perspective.”
