Elementary School Congressional Art Competition


Elementary Congressional Art Competition
This competition is open to all elementary school students from grades K-6. The winner will have their artwork on display within our district offices. Submissions must be received by one of our district offices by April 24, 2020 at 5:00 pm. Each school semester, students will be asked to base their artworks on preselected themes. These themes are directly tied to the characteristics and values of our great country. We hope that your students will be able to take this theme and express creativity in the art they create. Our springtime theme is “America’s Future.” We encourage students to use their imagination and base their artwork on how they picture America in the next 100 years. Artwork entered in the competition must have dimensions of either 8 by 11 in. or 11 by 14 in. and be of original content. There will be two winners selected: A Staff Favorite and a Fan Favorite. Each participating student will receive a certificate from our office, and winning artwork will be published on the official website as well as the Facebook page.

All submissions must be submitted digitally, by mail or in person. All digital submissions will be received at If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dorothy Richardson at (904) 738-0937 or
