The Congressional Art Competition is for High School students, and one in which the 4th Congressional District of Iowa participates. This is a visual art competition to “recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district.” Students submit entries to Steve King’s office, and then panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol. Last year, Sadie Lewman of Farnhamville, IA won.
