Loebsack Announces Start of Online Voting for 2015 Congressional Art ContestWritten by Theresa Rose on April 18, 2015
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that online voting to select the 2015 People’s Choice Award winner to represent Iowa’s Second Congressional District in the Congressional Art Contest has now begun. The piece that receives the most votes will be named this year’s winner and will be displayed in the tunnel leading to the U.S. Capitol for one year. The winning student and guardian will also each receive a free flight to Washington, D.C. to attend a reception held in their honor (all other expenses must be covered by the winner). This year, Loebsack’s office received nearly 50 entries from 12 different high schools in 10 counties.
Once again this year, to open the process to as many Iowans as possible, the winner will be chosen by the public. Voting is now open and will close on Friday, April 24th at 5:00pm CDT. The winner will be notified and announced the week of April 27th.
