Bucshon announced 2011 art competition

Thursday, April 14, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Larry Bucshon recently announced the 2011 Congressional Art Competition is underway and open to talented high school students from Indiana's Eighth Congressional District.

The competition allows each congressional district to submit one piece of artwork for display in the U.S. Capitol for the duration of one year.

Visitors from all over the world will be able to view the artwork from high school artists around the country.

The individual with the winning piece of art will receive two free roundtrip tickets to Washington D.C., tours of the Capitol and the White House, attend a Congressional awards ceremony and a meeting with Congressman Bucshon.

The contest is open to all high school students.

Students should have entries submitted to the Congressman's office by April 30, 2011. On May 1, all submissions will be posted online in a photo album on Facebook.

Judging will be a hybrid of an expert panel of fan voting through Facebook.

In order to vote, those interested must be a fan of Congressman Bucshon on Facebook.

In addition, the second- and third-place submissions will hang in his district offices in Evansville and Terre Haute.
