Alabama 7th District U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell on Monday announced the opening of the 2018 Congressional Art Competition.

The competition is open to both public and private high school students throughout the 7th Congressional District, as well as home-schooled high school students. The winner will receive two free round-trip airfare tickets to Washington, D.C., to attend an official reception honoring the winners from all the congressional districts around the country. In addition, their artwork will be showcased in the U.S. Capitol for one year.

Sewell has set the theme for this year’s competition to “An Artistic Discovery: Voting Rights Today in the 7th Congressional District.”

For more information on the contest, contact Sewell’s Montgomery office at (334) 262-1919 or visit https://sewell.house.gov/congressional-art-competition to find the student release form and guidelines for the artwork. Submissions must be made by  January 18, 2018.

As a proud product of Alabama’s rural Black Belt, the Congresswoman has seen first-hand the talent from within the 7th District. According to a news release, she has been immensely impressed with the outstanding submissions in past years, and she is incredibly proud to have the winning artwork representing the 7th Congressional District in our nation’s Capitol Building.

  1. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
