There are still a few weeks left for high school students to enter the 2024 Congressional Art Competition. The winner’s artwork will be featured in the U.S. Capitol.

Each spring, participating members of Congress host the art competition in their respective districts. The Congressional Art Competition for Kentucky’s Second District also includes a “Facebook Favorite” competition.

All students’ submitted artwork will be posted to Congressman Guthrie’s official Facebook page for the public to vote on between April 15-19, 2024, for their favorite artwork. The “Facebook Favorite” winner’s artwork will be displayed in Congressman Brett Guthrie’s Bowling Green District office as well.

“I’m encouraging all high school students who enjoy creating art to participate in the 2024 Congressional Art Competition,” Guthrie said. “Each year I am honored to host this competition, and I’m always impressed with the artistic talent of students across Kentucky’s Second District.”

Students must submit artwork by April 12. The winners of the Congressional Art Competition will be announced on April 22, 2024.

The artwork of students from Kentucky’s Second District are judged by an independent and local panel of art professors from colleges and universities. The overall winner’s artwork from Kentucky’s Second District and other districts and territories will be featured in the U.S. Capitol. The second- and third-place overall winners’ artwork will be displayed in Guthrie’s Bowling Green District office.

Artwork can be shipped to or dropped off at Congressman Guthrie’s District office at:
Congressman Brett Guthrie
Attention: 2024 Art Competition
996 Wilkinson Trace, Suite B2
Bowling Green, KY 42103

Students can also call Guthrie’s office at 270-842-9896 to make arrangements for a member of Guthrie’s staff to pick up artwork at the students’ schools, or for any questions.
