Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) announced that his office is now accepting submissions from California’s 39th Congressional District for the 2017 Congressional Art Competition.
The Congressional Art Competition is an annual contest organized to give the nation’s high school students an opportunity to showcase their artistic talents. All high school students within California's 39th Congressional District are encouraged to submit their favorite piece of original art to the competition.
“I look forward to the Congressional Art Competition every year, and I’m excited to again showcase the creativity and talent of our local high school students,” said Rep. Royce.
The winner, as determined by a panel of independent judges, will receive two complimentary airline tickets to Washington, D.C. so that they may see their artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol Complex and meet with Rep. Royce. Only one winning artist will be chosen from each Congressional District around the country.
Bianca Gutierrez of Glen A. Wilson High School won last year’s Congressional Art Competition with her entry "Doña Agustina.”
Artwork must be submitted to either Rep. Royce’s Brea Office (210 W. Birch Street, Ste. 201, Brea, CA) or Rowland Heights Office (1380 S. Fullerton Road, Ste. 203, Rowland Heights, CA) by 5 PM on Friday, April 14, 2017. Additional details and important privacy release forms that must accompany every competition entry can be found here.
