Orientation for students

Please don't miss the 2019-2020 SWHS student orientation. Letters will be sent the first week of August that will conatin the student's homeroom assignment, and that is where we will begin.  We suggest carpooling as parking may be a challenge. See you there!

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Northwest Florida Congressional Art Competition and Show is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our Congressional District.

The Northwest Florida Congressional Art Competition and Show is open to all high school students in our District. The winning artwork of our district's competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will include the winning artwork from all participating districts from around the country. The winning artwork is also featured on's Congressional Art Competition page.
