SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Budding young artists from South Dakota have a chance to display their work at the U.S. Capitol.

U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem says high school students from across the state can now enter their artwork to the 2016 Congressional Art Competition.

The competition began in 1982, and each congressional district has one winner. The selected artwork is displayed at the U.S. Capitol for an entire year, and winners are also invited to a reception in Washington, D.C.

The second-place winning entry from South Dakota will be displayed in Noem’s office in the nation’s capital.

All artwork submissions must be sent to the South Dakota Arts Council by April 19. Artwork must be original in concept, design and execution.

The South Dakota winners will be notified April 22.
