U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, D-Ore., is accepting submissions for the 2021 Congressional Art Competition.

The competition is open to any student in grades 9-12 who lives in or attends school in Oregon’s First Congressional District, which includes Clatsop, Washington, Yamhill, and Columbia counties.

Local artists will select the winning student, whose work will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building for a year. All students who participate will be invited to a virtual reception with the congresswoman during which the winner will be announced and all submissions will be shown.

The deadline for art submissions is April 30. Art can be mailed to Bonamici’s Beaverton office at 12725 S.W. Millikan Way, Suite 220, Beaverton, 97005.

For those who don’t want to put the art in the mail, staff will be available to receive art outside the front entrance from 8 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 28, and from 2 to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 30.
