Whitfieldds facebook art co"Beautiful Thoughts" 2014 Congressional Art Competition entry. Screenshot via Facebook.WASHINGTON (5/6/14) – U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield posted the entries for the 2014 Congressional Art Competition on his official Facebook page.

The art competition will determine the high school student that will represent Kentucky’s First Congressional District in the 2014 Congressional Art Competition in Washington. A total of thirty-three entries were submitted to the Congressman’s office in Hopkinsville from across the district.

Each entry is now available to be viewed by "liking" Congressman Whitfield’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/RepEdWhitfield. After "liking" the page, visit the “2014 Congressional Art Competition” album, which will be pinned to the top of Whitfield’s Facebook timeline.  Participants are encouraged to get their friends and family members to “like” their art to show support for their entry.

The Congressional Art Competition is an annual, nationwide contest sponsored by Members of Congress and the Congressional Institute to showcase the talent of their creative high school constituents. Submissions from winning artists will hang in a part of the Capitol complex known as the Cannon Tunnel - a walkway connecting the House office buildings with the U.S. Capitol and Capitol Visitors Center. Members of Congress along with congressional staff and countless visitors travel this corridor daily, enabling the selected artwork to be viewed by a truly nationwide audience.

The final winner will be determined by a panel of local art experts who will judge the artwork on various criteria. The winner and a guest will be invited to attend the Congressional Art Competition Reception on Capitol Hill being held in late June, 2014. The winning entry from the First Congressional District will be displayed in the Cannon tunnel, with the second place entry being displayed in Whitfield’s Washington, D.C. office and third place entry being displayed in his main district office in Hopkinsville. The winners of the art competition will be announced on Friday, May 16, 2014.

“Every day as I pass these works of art on my way to the Capitol, I continue to be impressed with our young people’s talent,” stated Whitfield. “It is truly an honor for a student to have their work exhibited in Washington and I am pleased to have these fine entries on my official Facebook page.”
