(Monroe, GA) Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) today announced that he is inviting the public to cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.  Fifty-two high school students in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District have submitted their artwork for a chance to receive a trip to Washington, D.C. and the honor of having their artwork displayed in the United States Capitol.  While artists from the Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts will decide who receives this top distinction, Georgia’s residents will determine the recipient of the People’s Choice Award. 

“I am extremely impressed by the artistic abilities of Georgia’s 10th District high school students,” said Hice.  “Because their outstanding work deserves recognition, I hope that as many people as possible will visit my Facebook page to view their artwork, leave a positive comment, and vote for their favorite piece.  Then, you’re invited to join us at the Monroe Art Guild on Saturday, April 29th at 10:00 a.m. as we celebrate art together.” 

Hice will announce the recipient of the People’s Choice Award at the Monroe Art Guild, located at 205 South Broad Street, on Saturday, April 29th.  The winner of the People’s Choice Award will receive a prize from a downtown merchant and his or her artwork will hang in the Congressman’s Monroe, Georgia office.  To view this year’s submissions, go online to and click on “Photos.”  The Congressman will award one point for each “like” and two points for each “share,” and the photo with the most points wins.  Voting closes at 3:00 p.m. on April 28th.  Click HERE to cast your vote.

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
