Kline calls for student art

U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, invites high school students who are currently residents of Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District to participate in the 32nd annual Congressional “Artistic Discovery” competition.

The nationwide art competition provides members of Congress an opportunity to showcase the talents of high school students in their districts. The annual competition includes paintings, drawings, collages, prints, photography, computer generated art, and mixed media presentations.

Winning entries are displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol Building. The winner will also be invited to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new display in Washington with airfare for the student and a guardian provided – free of charge – by a participating airline.

Artwork by the two runners-up will be displayed in Kline’s offices in Washington and Burnsville.

All artists who enter the competition receive certificates of participation. Art entries must be received by Kline’s office in Burnsville by Friday, April 19.
