HANCOCK COUNTY — Congressman Luke Messer invites high school students in Indiana’s Sixth Congressional District to enter their artwork in the 2015 Congressional Art Competition.

The competition serves as a way for students to showcase their artistic abilities. The winning student will have their artwork displayed for one year and will receive two round-trip tickets to attend a reception in their honor in Washington D.C., in June.

The artwork will be divided into seven categories including paintings, drawings, collages, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art and photography.

All entries must be submitted with the competition guidelines and the student information and release form. The deadline for submissions is April 17.
