U.S. Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) will once again host a Congressional Art Competition in 2020. Students in grades 9-12 wishing to participate must reside within the 36th Congressional District of Texas. All entries must follow the theme “Memories of the Battleship Texas,” and depictions may include a time the student personally visited the U.S.S. Texas (BB-35) or of the Battleship Texas in combat during her tours in the First or Second World Wars. 

Teachers or home school students must submit an intent to apply application no later than Friday, Feb. 14. The first place recipient must be able to participate in the national awards reception in Washington, DC. Round-trip airfare and accommodations for two in Washington will be provided.

The first place entry will represent the 36th District for one year in an exhibit in the Cannon Tunnel of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, DC. The second and third place entries will be displayed for one year in Congressman Babin’s Washington and District offices, respectively.
