Ongoing Congressional Art Contest

U.S. Representative Bill Huizenga announced the start of the 2022 Congressional Art Contest for high school students in Michigan’s 2nd congressional district.

“Western Michigan students are used to creating and designing amazing artwork for the Congressional Art Contest,” Huizenga said. “People across the country and around the world will see what the talented 2nd District students bring to life. This year marking the 40th anniversary of the Congressional Art Competition, I look forward to seeing the students show off their artistic abilities and reach even greater heights.

All original entries must be submitted to Congressman Huizenga’s office in Grandville. Entries are limited to one per student. The deadline to submit art is 5 p.m. on Monday, April 18.

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of local art and design professionals. The top 12 student artists will be invited to attend a reception here in West Michigan where the winner will be announced on May 2.

The winning piece will be displayed in the “Cannon Tunnel” which connects the United States Capitol and the Cannon House office building. The winning artist will also have the opportunity to attend a national gathering of student artists in Washington, DC. Second and third place winners will have their work exhibited at Huizenga’s office in Grandville.

The 2022 Congress Art Contest rules can be found here. Any questions regarding the competition, submitting an artwork, or arranging for an artwork drop off can be directed to Presley at the Huizenga office in Grandville. The office can be reached by dialing (616) 570-0917.
