Rep. Todd Young now accepting entries for 2013 Congressional Art Competition

Congressman Todd Young is pleased to announce that the 2013 Congressional Art Competition (CAC) has begun.  This nationwide annual art competition encourages high school students from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories to showcase their artistic ability.  Any legal resident of the 9th Congressional District of Indiana may submit artwork to the 9th District offices in Jeffersonville, Bloomington or Greenwood. 

The CAC was established in 1982 so that members of Congress could recognize and encourage the artistic talents of their young constituents, and all 2013 entries will be  hung and on display to the public at the Jeffersonville 9th District office for three weeks, as well as showcased on the website throughout the year.

One entry will be chosen to represent the 9th Congressional District of Indiana, and will hang in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., for one year as part of an exhibition showcasing outstanding artwork from across the country.  In addition, the first-place entrant will receive a pair of roundtrip airline tickets to Washington, D.C. for a gala reception in June honoring all winners.  Entries will be scored by a panel of professional artists from the 9th District (75% of total score) and through votes on Young’s Facebook page at http://facebook.com/RepToddYoung (25% of total score).

More information about the 2013 Congressional Art Competition, including eligibility information, contest rules and entry forms can be found on Rep. Young’s website at http://toddyoung.house.gov/congressional-art-competition/, or by contacting Ronny Hornung or Aaron Minnich in the Jeffersonville office at (812) 288-3999.
