Congressman Stephen F. Lynch has announced the opening of "An Artistic Discovery,” the 25th Annual Congressional Art Competition. This competition is open to all high school students who reside in the 9th Congressional District.  The winner will have his or her work displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a full year. 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, the students’ artwork will be displayed this summer at their local Town Hall.


The Annual Congressional Art Competition is now open for submissions, and all entries must be received by May 19, 2006.  Entries should be sent to Congressman Lynch’s Boston District Office and put to the attention of Kenya Beaman.  Please feel free to contact Congressman Lynch’s office at (617) 428-2000 or refer to his website,, for more information on the competition.


"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 last year’s winner, Alexander Daluz of Brockton, 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.”
