WASHINGTON, DC (WNEM) -

High school students in Mid-Michigan have the chance to have their artwork featured in the Capitol.

The 2016 Congressional Art Competition is sponsored by members of the U.S. House of Representatives Congressional Art Caucus.

Congressman Dan Kildee is sponsoring Michigan's fifth district. Any high school student who lives in his district is eligible to submit their work for the competition.

"The Congressional Art Competition is a great opportunity to showcase the talent and creativity of high schoolers throughout Michigan and the nation," Kildee said.

The first place winner from Kildee's district will have their artwork on display for one year in the Cannon Tunnel to the U.S. Capitol. They will also be invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony in Washington D.C. in June.

The submitted artwork must follow these guidelines:

  • It must be two-dimensional.
  • It can not be larger than 28" high, 28" wide and 4" deep. Those dimensions include the frame.
  • Framed pieces should not weigh more than 15 pounds.

All participants must also submit a Student Information and Release Form to the back of their artwork. The form can be found here.

The deadline is April 29 at 5 p.m. Participants can drop off their pieces to Kildee's office at 111 S. Saginaw St., #3B in Flint, or to any of his mobile offices.
