Congressional Art Competition

The Office of Congresswoman Escobar will only accept physical submissions for the 2023 Congressional Art Competition. 

Mi Querido Viejo by Taylor Mallohan from Bel Air High School

 The Office of Congresswoman Escobar will host an information session about the 2023 Congressional Art Competition as soon as more information is released.

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is open to all high school students in the District.

The winner of the Texas’ 16th Congressional District competition will have their artwork displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol Building. The exhibit in Washington D.C. will also include artwork from other contest winners nation-wide.

Last year, Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (TX-16) announced that Taylor Mallohan, from Bel Air High School, won the 2022 Congressional Art Competition with her piece titled "Mi Querido Viejo." The 2023 Congressional Art Competition will launch later this year and more information on artwork requirements and submission rules will be available.
