Rep. Royce Announces Annual High School Art Competition
Feb 24, 2011 -
Each spring, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) holds an art contest in his Orange District Office for high school students in the 40th District. Today, Rep. Royce announced that he is currently accepting entries for his Annual Congressional High School Art Competition.
"Every year, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives recognize the creative spirit of American high school students in a nationwide art competition. This is a great opportunity for high school students to showcase their talents," said Rep. Royce.
The contest is a part of a nationwide Congressional High School Art Competition sponsored by the Congressional Arts Caucus. The winning piece of art from Royce's district joins winners from other Congressional districts around the country and is displayed in the Cannon House Office Building Tunnel, a high-traffic pedestrian walkway leading to the United States Capitol Building.
All interested high school artists in the 40th Congressional district may participate by submitting their entries no later than 5pm on Monday, April 25, 2011 to Royce's office in Orange, located at 1110 E. Chapman Ave., Suite 207.
