Representative Miller-Meeks has formally announced the start of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition for the Second District.
The annual competition is conducted by the U.S. House of Representatives to showcase the talent of high school students from across the nation. Miller-Meeks’ announcement was specifically for the Second Congressional District which she represents. The winner of this year’s event will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C. to attend a reception honoring the winner from each Congressional district and will have their work displayed in the halls of the U.S. Capitol for one calendar year. Runners-up will have the opportunity to have their art put on display in Miller-Meeks’ offices in Ottumwa and Davenport.
“I am thrilled to announce the launch of this year’s Congressional Art Competition. Last year I was pleased to see so many incredible pieces of art from across the Second District. I would encourage any student or art teacher with questions or interest in submitting for this year to contact my office. I look forward to seeing the creativity and artistic talent of the Second District on full display!”Mariannette Miller-Meeks
