Congressional art competition open to high schoolers

March 24, 2013


High school students in Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District are invited to submit work for this year’s Congressional Art Competition.

Students should submit entries to 3rd District Rep. Kevin Yoder’s Overland Park District Office, 7325 W. 79th St. The deadline is 5 p.m. April 19. An Arts Advisory Committee of 3rd District artists will select the winning entry, which will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. Honorable mentions also will be named.

Artwork must be two-dimensional. For size guidelines and other competition details, visit or call 913-621-0832.

What? Surely Yoder knows that art is both a frivolous and evil waste of time and money, doesn't he?

Is Yoder one of the "conservative" lawmakers who have their staff raises and bonuses, even after the sequester took affect? Maybe he needed to hire another staff member to handle the art. Meanwhile, federal employees are trying to renegotiate mortgages, so they can survive the furloughs. Maybe lawmakers need to start making and pouring their own coffee for a change.
