JONESBORO — Today, Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) released the guidelines for his annual Congressional Art Competition for high school students (grades 9-12) in the First District of Arkansas. This competition is part of a nationwide high school visual arts competition sponsored by the Congressional Institute. 

Students from the district submit their artwork in one of the competition’s seven medium categories: collage, drawing, digital design, mixed media, painting, photography, and print. Winners are chosen from each category and the overall winner of the competition will be recognized at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.
