U.S. Rep. Scott Perry is encouraging high school students from the York area to show off their artistic ability in the 2014 Congressional Art Competition.

The contest is an annual national competition that was started by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982.

A winning piece of art will be chosen for each Congressional district, and those pieces will be displayed in an eleven-month exhibit in the Cannon tunnel that leads to the U.S. Capitol. The winning artist will also receive a $3,000 renewable scholarship to The Savannah College of Art and Design, and will be invited to attend a reception in Washington, D.C., where they and a guest will be escorted on a tour of the U.S. Capitol.

Submissions for Perry's district will be accepted at his offices in York, Gettysburg and Wormleysburg through Friday, April 4.

Further information about the program, including required paperwork and guidelines, can be found on Perry's website here.
