Congresswoman Karen Bass has announced that the 2013 Congressional Art Competition “An Artistic Discovery" is now underway. Do you know a talented high school art student? If so, they could enter to win two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, D.C.
Last year’s winner was Culver City student Michelle Bac.
Every year since 1982, the U.S. House of Representatives has sponsored a nationwide high school arts contest.
Any high school student in the 37th Congressional District of California is welcome to submit their artwork to Rep. Bass’s office to enter the competition. The deadline is April 15.
The winner of the competition will win two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, DC, to attend the unveiling ceremony with Members of Congress and special guests. In addition, the winner’s artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year.
Starting Mon. April 22, submissions will be displayed in an online gallery on Rep. Bass’s official website and the public will be able to vote for their favorite.
