Each year the United States House of Representatives sponsors a Congressional Art Competition for high school students. The “Artistic Discovery Competition” began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.
