Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Northwest Florida Congressional Art Competition and Show is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our Congressional District.

The Northwest Florida Congressional Art Competition and Show is open to all high school students in our District. The winning artwork of our district's competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will include the winning artwork from all participating districts from around the country. The winning artwork is also featured on's Congressional Art Competition page.

If you or any of your students have questions, please contact Laura Rakas in my Pensacola District Office – or 850-479-1183.  I will be in touch going forward by e-mail.  I look forward to highlighting the artistic talents of the First Congressional District’s high school students.
