“I can think of no better platform to showcase the artistic skills of young people across Maryland’s Eighth than the Congressional Art Competition,” Raskin said.

“I encourage all high school students in our district to share their artistic vision with us, and I am excited to get a glimpse into the future of American art. I thank all participants in advance for sharing their creativity with the people of the Eighth District.”
