Congressional Art Competition


The Congressional Institute and members of the U.S. House of Representatives hold an annual Congressional Art Competition to highlight and celebrate the artistic talent and vision of our high school students. 

This spring, Rep. Wexton is excited to participate in the 2024 Congressional Art Competition. A panel of distinguished judges will select the winning “Best in Show” art piece to represent the Virginia 10th District in a nation-wide exhibit displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building where it will be appreciated by millions of visitors. 

This competition is open to all high school students, grades 9th – 12th who reside or attend school within the Virginia 10th Congressional District
*Please note, the Congressional District boundaries changed in January 2023. To confirm your eligibility to enter for VA-10, visit  Who’s My Legislator and enter your home address.*
