U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan is encouraging local high school students to compete the 30th Annual Congressional Student Arts Competition.
“This nationwide competition provides students with an excellent opportunity to showcase their talent," Buchanan said.
All high school students who reside in or attend school in Florida’s 13th District are eligible to participate and each school can submit up to three student entries.
Those entries will be judged by a curator for the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota.
The top entry from the district will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol with work from winning entries from every congressional district in the nation. The winner also will earn a flight for two to Washington, D.C., to present his or her winning artwork.
Second- through fourth-place winners, as well as those who receive honorable mention, will have their work displayed in the Ringling Museum on Art for one year.
The deadline to submit artwork is 5 p.m., April 29.
All entries and paperwork should be delivered to one of Buchanan’s offices located at:
111 South Orange Avenue
Floor 2R, Suite 202W
Sarasota, FL 34236
2424 Manatee Avenue West
Bradenton, FL 34205
An awards ceremony and reception to honor participants will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m., May 6, at the Ringling Museum of Art.
For more information, contact Buchanan’s Bradenton office at 747-9081 or his Sarasota office at 951-6643.
