Press Release

Today, Congressman Chris Pappas (NH-01) announced the start of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District.

Each spring, a nationwide high school arts competition is sponsored by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in collaboration with the Congressional Institute. The competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent across the nation, as well as in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District.

Congressman Pappas welcomes participation from high school students who attend schools or live in New Hampshire's First Congressional District. The district’s winning artwork will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol, as part of an exhibit with winners from around the country. Our winner will also receive eleven original prints from Richard Haynes’s 2020 Currier Museum exhibit Whispering Quilts, and will be featured on the House Congressional Art Competition webpage. Second place artwork will be displayed in Congressman Pappas’s D.C. office in the Cannon Building, and third place will be displayed in the Manchester district office.

The deadline for submitting work to be considered for the 2021 Competition is Sunday, April 4, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.

All entrants will be invited to a reception with Congressman Pappas where the winner will be announced. Please stay tuned as more details will be announced in the coming weeks.
