Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol. The event takes place Saturday, April 28, 12:00pm – 2:00pm. The Art League is located in the 3rd Congressional District, served by Congressman Tom Suozzi, at 107 East Deer Park Road in Dix Hills. Student artwork is due April 25. Details can be found on the Congressman’s website at https://suozzi.house.gov/services/art-competition
