2012 Congressional Art Competition
I am proud to announce the 2012 Congressional Art Competition, An Artistic Discovery. All local high schools are invited to participate by submitting up to three pieces of original student artwork.
The Artistic Discovery competition encourages and recognizes the rich artistic talents of young Americans. Students are allowed to submit various styles and types of art, ranging from paintings and drawings to photography and mixed media pieces. The winners will be determined using criteria based on originality, skill of execution, excellence in use of materials and conceptual strength of the project. Please see the guidelines for detailed information on this competition. Additionally, all participants must submit a release form with their art work.
Once again, it is my pleasure to host this event, and I look forward to showcasing the talented young artisans of the 17th District. A reception will be held Monday, May 21st from 5-7pm at the Monterey County Office of Education, 910 Blanco Circle, Salinas, CA 93901. The first place winner will receive two roundtrip tickets to Washington, D.C. from Southwest Airlines. A reception for winners will be held in Washington, D.C. in mid-June and the student's artwork will be displayed in the Capitol for a year.
