First District Congressman Paul Ryan will be hosting the annual First Congressional District Art Competition on Saturday, May 14. Ryan has invited each high school in the First Congressional District to submit one entry for the contest, which is part of the 24th annual Congressional Arts Competition — An Artistic Discovery. The nationwide art competition, which is voluntarily sponsored by Members of Congress, provides young student artists with an opportunity to showcase their work locally, as well as the chance to be recognized at the national level for their talent and creativity. The first-place winner in each congressional district competition will have his or her winning entry displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol. The winning artist will also be invited to a national reception in Washington, DC, honoring student artists from all over the country.
