The Congressional Art Competition is a national contest organized once a year to give high school students the opportunity to showcase their artistic abilities. All high school students within California's 39th Congressional District are encouraged to submit their favorite piece of original art to the competition.
The Grand Prize Winner of the competition receives 2 complimentary round trip tickets to Washington, D.C. to see their artwork displayed in the Capitol Building, and is invited to an exclusive reception in their honor. Only one winner will be chosen for each Congressional District.
Michelle Anne Liang of Rowland High School won the 2017 Congressional Art Competition with her entry “Ripple.” Michelle received 2 roundtrip tickets to Washington, DC to view her artwork on display in the U.S. Capitol Building.
Jasmine Li received second place for her work “Quietness” and Rosina Hung received third place for her piece “The Hopeful Man.”
