McEachin announces start of congressional art contest

RICHMOND

Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) calls on high school students to begin submitting their best works of art for consideration in the 4th Congressional District’s 2018 Congressional Art Competition.

“I am incredibly proud of Jada Epps each time I walk past her 2017 first place drawing on display in the U.S. Capitol. I look forward to seeing the art that will represent our district next,” said Congressman Donald McEachin.

All students who live in Virginia’s 4th Congressional District attending school in grades 9-12 are invited to submit original artwork in concept, design and execution in the 2018 Congressional Art Competition. Artwork must be two-dimensional, weigh no more than 15 pounds, but may be in any medium (paintings, drawings, collages, prints, photography, graphic design, etc.). Students, parents and teachers can find complete rules for entry at www.mceachin.house.gov. All submissions must be received before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 27.
