Lipinski Annouces 2009 Congressional Art Competition for 3rd District High School Students

Greetings High School Students, Parents and Teachers!

I am pleased to announce the 2009 Congressional Art Competition for Illinois' 3rd Congressional District. This competition is open to artists in grades 9 through 12 who would like their submitted artwork to be the winning piece that is displayed in the Cannon tunnel for the visitors to the United States Capitol to view. One piece of artwork will be selected to represent the Third District and will be showcased in the Capitol representing the outstanding artistic talents from young artists from across the United States.

Artwork must be received in my Chicago District office located at 6245 South Archer Avenue no later than Friday May 1, 2009. The winning artwork will be announced in May and the piece will be transferred to Washington, D.C. for display in June 2009.

For information regarding rules and guidelines for the Art Competition please call Joe Bonomo at (312) 886-0481. To be considered, a student release form must be filled out and signed along with an adhesive label to the back of the artwork that is submitted by May 1st.

A copy of the release form along with the general guidelines for the artwork and the framing requirements can be found by clicking above.  

The 2009 Congressional Art Competition Artwork can be submitted in person to Joe Bonomo, the Special Events Coordinator in Congressman Dan Lipinski's office located at 6245 South Archer Avenue, Chicago, IL 60638

I look forward to seeing the great talent of the students in the Third Congressional District.
