The winning student will be invited to Washington D.C. for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and will have his or her artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year.

Students in grades 7-12 are encouraged to submit their art, which can range from paintings and drawings to photography and mixed media pieces. The artwork must be original in design and no more than 15 pounds, no larger than 26” x 26” x 4” and be prepared for hanging.

Three runners-up will have their artwork on display in Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ Spokane, Colville and Walla Walla offices.
