Congressman Conaway Announces Student Art Contest
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 • Posted April 13, 2011

Once a year Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have the opportunity to host locally judged art competitions for high school age students within their districts. Since this competition entitled, “An Artistic Discovery,” was created in 1982, hundreds of thousands of high school students have participated at the local level. The winning piece of art from each Congressional district is displayed in the Cannon tunnel, a pedestrian walkway leading to the United States Capitol, for approximately one year. This walkway is frequented by Members of Congress, staff and the general public as they enter the Capitol Building and thus provides an opportunity for thousands to enjoy the talents of young artists from every region of the country. Each winning student will be invited to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the Cannon tunnel of the Capitol Building.A reception will be held on the Odessa College campus to recognize all of the participants and to announce the winner of the contest.Odessa CollegeLearning Resources Center – Options Gallery201 W.
