Bordallo announces Congressional Art Competition


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo and the Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency (CAHA) today announced the start of the annual 2016 Congressional Art Competition. The Congressional Art Competition is a nation-wide annual high school arts competition sponsored by the Congressional Institute and Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. 650,000 high school students have participated since the competition began in 1982.

Congresswoman Bordallo invites all Guam high school students to participate in the competition. Each school may submit individual entries of up to 20 students for the local competition. All pieces must be original and not submitted in prior Congressional Art Competitions. All entries must be accompanied by the enclosed Student Information/Release Form with the required signatures. All entries must be submitted no later than 5pm on Friday, April 15, 2015 to the Guam Congressional District Office, located in the Capitol Plaza Building, 120 Father Duenas Avenue, Suite 107 in Hagåtña.

Additional information and 2015 Art Competition, additional information, forms, and samples of artwork from across the nation can be viewed at the official Congressional Art Competition website:

All artwork submitted will be judged by a panel of local artists. Artwork will be displayed in a local show on island and the winner will have his or her artwork displayed for an eleven month exhibit in the Cannon tunnel that leads to the U.S. Capitol Building. The winning artist will also be awarded a roundtrip ticket to Washington D.C., to attend the official reception for the Congressional Art Competition.

“This is a unique opportunity for our young people to showcase their talents and the beauty of our island,” said Congresswoman Bordallo. “The Congressional Art Competition allows winning artists from Congressional districts around the country to have their work displayed in the U.S. Capitol. I have been impressed by works submitted over the years, and I look forward to seeing this year’s submissions. I encourage all of our high school students to participate and take part in the competition. I thank the Guam Council of Arts and Humanities and our sponsors for their support and I look forward to another successful competition.”
