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.”

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.
