Monroe, GA – On Monday, US Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) announced that online voting is now is open for the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. The public can now cast its vote to determine the winning piece, which will hang for one year in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol – the most highly traveled access point between the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Capitol.
“As we continue to practice social distancing, we are abandoning our annual reception and traditional judging panel for a strictly online competition,” Hice said. “Join me in celebrating student art by visiting my Facebook page and leaving an encouraging word for our talented youth. Then vote for your favorite piece! This is an exciting opportunity to recognize and encourage creativity in our young people from our own local communities and across the nation.”
Several students from local schools in Walton County have pieces that are included as finalists in this competition. To view art entries submitted by high school students from across the district, visit Congressman Hice’s Facebook page. He will award one point for each “like” and two points for each “share” (with a limit of one share per person per day), and the photo with the most points wins. Voting will close at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 7th. Click here to cast your vote.
