KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) is now accepting entries from all interested Third District high school students for the 2015 Congressional Art Competition.
Since 1982, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition every spring to recognize and encourage artistic talent across the nation.
Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
Artwork entered in the contest may be up to 28 inches high by 28 inches long, including the frame, and up to four inches deep.
Interested students should submit entries to Yoder’s Overland Park District Office located at 7325 W. 79th Street by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 24th. An Arts Advisory Committee made up of artists from around the district will then select the winning entry to be put on display at the US Capitol.
