Congressman Kean announces 2023 Congressional Art Competition

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Tom Kean, Jr. (NJ-07) Tuesday announced the launch of the 2023 Congressional Art Competition.

All high school students (grades 9-12) in New Jersey’s Seventh Congressional District are invited to participate. The deadline for submissions will be 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19.

“I am very excited to invite all high school students in the Seventh District to participate in the annual Congressional Art Competition,” Kean said.  “I am looking forward to seeing our students express their creativity and talent, and to see the winning artwork from the our community displayed alongside artwork from all across the nation in the U.S. Capitol.”

Each spring, a nationwide high school arts competition is hosted by the Congressional Institute to recognize and encourage the artistic talent of students across the nation. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. The winning artwork from New Jersey’s Seventh Congressional District will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.  Two runner-up pieces will also be chosen for display in both Rep. Kean’s Washington, D.C. and New Jersey offices.

All entries must be submitted via e-mail and include a high-res photo of the artwork and a completed student information and release form. The required forms and full guidelines for the competition can be found at:
