  • All high school students who are residents in the 25th Congressional district are eligible to enter.

  • The artwork must be no larger than 28” by 28” to the outside dimensions of the frame, and no more than 4” in depth. Please note that the work, including frame cannot weigh more than fifteen (15) pounds. Work must be suitable to hang in the Capitol, but the decision about this suitability is made by the Capitol Architect. In accordance with this policy, exhibits depicting subjects of contemporary political controversy or a sensationalistic or gruesome nature are not allowed.
  • The artwork must be original in design, concept and execution – the student and teacher must sign a form attesting to this originality. Student entrants must also sign a release form, which gives the Capitol permission to reproduce their work in conjunction with promotion of the art competition.
  • Artwork will hang in the Capitol for the entire year of the exhibition and cannot be returned to students earlier, Students should therefore submit artwork they will not need for other purposes.
