ALBANY, GA (WTVM) -
Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) invites high

"I have long believed that in our southwest and middle area
of Georgia, we have some of the best, the brightest, the most creative, and the
most talented young people in the world," said Congressman Bishop. "The
Congressional Art Competition is an excellent medium through which we can
channel the creativity and imagination of young students across the nation,
promote art education, and give recognition to the outstanding work that our
schools are doing to enable young people to realize their potential."
The winner of this year's competition will have his or her
artwork displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel, a busy underground walkway

invited to attend a reception at the Thronateeska Heritage Museum in Albany at

The winner will also be invited to join Congressman Bishop
at a national awards reception in Washington, D.C.
