Rep. Joe Wilson's Office Accepting 2018 Congressional Art Competition Submissions

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) announces the 2018 Congressional Art Competition. 

“I am honored to announce that my office is now accepting submissions for the 2018 Congressional Art Competition. For the past 36 years, this competition has inspired and encouraged young artists,” Rep. Joe Wilson said.

Each year, members of the U.S. House of Representatives participate in a nation-wide high school arts competition sponsored by the Congressional Institute.

“I know how much talent there is in South Carolina’s Second Congressional District, and I hope every high school student who is interested participates. I look forward to seeing the entries.”

This competition is open to all high school students, and one winner will be selected to represent the Second District. The winning artwork will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol with art from all participating districts around the country. 

Entries for the 2018 Congressional Art Competition are due to Congressman Wilson’s district offices in the Midlands or Aiken-Barnwell by close of business on April 30, 2018.
