Morgan Griffith Announces High School Art Competition

More from Congressman Morgan Griffith's E-Newsletter:

"2015 Congressional Art Competition

High school students (grades 9 – 12) residing in the Ninth Congressional District are again invited to participate in the Congressional Art Competition, which began in 1982.  The chosen theme for this year is “Famous Folks, Towns, and Beauty in Virginia’s Ninth Congressional District.”  I encourage students to put some thought into their work and be creative when designing their original pieces.

The winning artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol complex for a year.  The student will also be invited to Washington to celebrate the unveiling of his/her work.  In addition, the second and third place selections will be on display in our offices.

Participating students are asked to submit a photograph of their original artwork to either the Christiansburg or Abingdon office by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1st.  For specific guidelines, please contact Elliott Silverman at

If you have questions, concerns, or comments, feel free to contact my office.  You can call my Abingdon office at 276-525-1405 or my Christiansburg office at 540-381-5671.  To reach my office via email, please visit my website at "
