Artwork, interns sought

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The office of U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, will accept artwork from high school students in the 17th district for the annual Congressional Art Competition.

The 17th district includes Carroll and Whiteside counties. Students must submit a digital image of their original artwork through Bustos’ website.

There is a limit of one per submitter.

The winner and runners-up will be chosen by a committee of local art experts. The submissions also will be placed in an Internet gallery to receive votes from the public. The People’s Choice Award will go to the entry that receives the most online votes.

The winning piece will be displayed with other district winners in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., for the next year. The winner also will receive two round-trip airline tickets to Washington. Runners-up will have their work displayed in Bustos’ Illinois and Washington offices.

The submission deadline is April 8; the winners and runners-up will be chosen later that month.

Bustos also will accept summer internship applications for her offices in Peoria, Rockford, Rock Island, and Washington. She encourages submitting applications before April 1, although admissions to the internship program are rolling.
