Rep. Schneider seeks student artwork for congressional contest
U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider of Deerfield is inviting students who live in the 10th House District to participate in the annual Congressional Art Competition.
Students are encouraged to interpret the theme of "Unity." Pieces will be judged by a panel of local educators and artists.
The event is being held virtually this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Submissions can be made at docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScgStOZVAz6DIKo7Md2pYiNPPtT6QN8FIumqkRQiiMtiRbyUg/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1&flr=0&gxids=7628.
Work should be submitted as high-resolution, well-lit photos. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. April 16. One piece will be accepted per student.
Winning pieces will decorate the halls of Congress and congressional offices.
"This year more than ever, students' works will serve to cleanse our workplace and our politics," Schneider said in a news release. "I'm looking forward to reviewing the many remarkable entries."
