Additionally, there will be a reception in Washington, D.C. for all art competition winners and their families to celebrate the opening of the exhibit.


To highlight the talent of art students in the 9th Congressional District, all of the artwork will be displayed this summer at the South Shore Plaza.

"I hope that every high school student with a passion for art takes part in this exciting competition.  Last year, we had dozens of outstanding entries, and I was proud to have the artwork of Clara Bohan of East Walpole representing our District in Washington.  I look forward to viewing all of this year’s submissions and displaying one of them in the U.S. Capitol this summer.”
