Rep. Lujan's office has compiled information that may be helpful for students across the 3rd Congressional District. His office encourages young constituents to learn more about the legislative process and their government.


In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Our internship program allows students to gain invaluable professional experience while working in an exciting, fast-paced environment. Funding is available to pay interns a monthly stipend. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

In my New Mexico offices, internships also run throughout the fall, spring and summer semesters. Interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting constituents. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent casework or work on District-based projects of importance.

Currently, all of the Congressman's staff are working remotely. This internship will be done remotely with the possibility of transitioning to an in-person internship should staff return to in-person work.

Congressional Art Competition

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district.

The Art Competition is open to all high school students. The over-all winner of our district's competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will also include artwork from other contest winners nation-wide.

For this year's dates and guidelines, please visit my announcement of the 2020 Art Competition. 

All entries must be an original in concept, design and execution.

The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.

If you would like more information on the annual Congressional District Art Competition - including this year's deadlines - please contact my office.

Congressional App Competition

The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is a public effort to encourage students to learn how to code, through annual district-wide competitions hosted by Members of Congress for their district.

Middle and high school students code original applications for the chance to be selected for recognition by their Member of Congress, win prizes, and have their work put on display in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. Learn more about the app competition here.
