TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

U.S. Rep. Ron Barber is asking all high school age artists, living in the second district, to submit their best artwork for consideration in this nationwide competition. 

Artwork submissions can be paintings (oil, acrylic, or watercolor); drawings (pastels, colored pencil, pencil, charcoal, ink or markers); a collage, prints (lithographs, silkscreen or block prints); mixed media; computer-generated art; and photography.  They must be no larger than 28" x 28" x 4" (including the frame) and weigh no more than 15 pounds.  All entries must be original in concept, design and execution, according to a release from U.S. Rep. Ron Barber's office.

The winner will be flown (with a parent or legal guardian) to Washington D.C. for a presentation and to see their artwork hung in the Capitol Building next to past winners.

Artwork can be submitted from now until March 24 at 5 p.m. to either of Barber's offices – Tucson (3945 E. Ft. Lowell Rd., Ste. 211) or Sierra Vista (77 Calle Portal, Ste. B-160).
