High school students invited to participate in art competition

U.S. Representative Mike Bost recently invited high school students from Illinois’ 12th Congressional District to participate in the 2023 Congressional Art Competition. Initiated by Congress in 1982, the nationwide annual art competition allows high school students from all 50 states to showcase their artistic ability.

“Every spring, I enjoy seeing the artwork that our talented southern Illinois high school students create for the Congressional Art Competition,” said Bost. “This competition gives them a great opportunity to showcase their skills, and I encourage students to participate.”
