Congressman Peter DeFazio

Representing the 4th District of OREGON

2017 Congressional Art Competition

Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC.  Winners will be awarded two round-trip airline tickets to Washington D.C. to attend the awards ceremony and see their submission hanging in the Capitol. 

The deadline for submission is Friday, May 5th, 2017.

Please contact my district office at (541) 465-6732 with any questions.
