VIDEO: Huizenga Announces Start of 2021 Congressional Art Competition
Washington, March 29, 2021
Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga announced the start of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition for high school students across Michigan’s Second Congressional District.
“The Congressional Art Competition offers a great way for students to demonstrate their skill and ability,” said Congressman Bill Huizenga. “I look forward to seeing students across West Michigan put their creative and artistic talents on full display.”
All original entries should be submitted to Congressman Huizenga’s Office in Grandville. Entries are limited to one per student. The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. on Monday, April 19.
The 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 in early May. The winning piece will be displayed in the “Cannon Tunnel” that connects the U.S. Capitol and the Cannon House Office Building. The winning artist will also have the opportunity to attend a national meeting of student artists in Washington, D.C. The second and third place artists will have their work put on display in Congressman Huizenga’s Grandville Office.
