“Every spring, I enjoy seeing the artwork that our talented Southern Illinois high school students create for the Congressional Art Competition,” said Bost. “This competition gives them a great opportunity to showcase their skills, and I encourage students to participate.”

The Congressional Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our Congressional District. The winning artwork from our District's competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol.

Judging is performed by members of the local art community. The deadline to submit participation forms will be April 26, 2024. Further information about the program, including guidelines and student release forms that are required in order to participate in the 2024 competition, can be found on Congressman Bost’s website or by calling his office at (618) 457-5787.
