U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, is hosting an art competition for high school students from the 14th Congressional District.

The winner’s artwork will hang in the U.S. Capitol for a year, according to a news release. In the Congressional Art Competition, created in 1982, a winner is selected from each district. Southwest Airlines provides each winner with a round-trip ticket to Washington, D.C.

Last year’s winner was Carrie Sha of Aurora, and her winning piece, Senior Smile, is featured on the Congressional Art Competition website. The 14th District includes part of eastern DeKalb County, including Sycamore, Cortland, Hinckley and Sandwich.

Entries must be submitted to Hultgren’s district office, 1797 W. State St., Suite A, Geneva, 60134, by April 4. For information or for competition guidelines and student release forms, please visit the Congressional Art Competition website at house.gov/content/educate/art_competition. Those interested also can call Ruth Richardson in Hultgren’s office at 630-232-7104.
