Eshoo Launches 2016 Congressional Art Competition in California’s 18th Congressional District

February 3rd, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-Palo Alto) announced today this year’s district-wide Congressional Art Competition to discover and celebrate talented high school artists and their work.

“Creativity and freedom of expression are bedrock American values,” Eshoo said. “That’s why for the last 30 years the Congressional Art Competition has recognized and encouraged artistic talent among our youth. I’m proud to keep this tradition flourishing by launching this year’s competition in California’s 18th Congressional District.”

About the Competition

All high school students from throughout the 18th Congressional District are invited to participate and exceptions may be made for schools that have 7th through 12th grades on one campus. Students can participate by submitting their works of art to Rep. Eshoo’s Palo Alto office at 698 Emerson Street by 5 p.m. PST on Friday, April 8th. A local reception will be held to announce the winner and honor all participants.

The winning artist, whose work is chosen by a panel of distinguished local artists, has the distinction of having his or her artwork displayed in the corridors of the nation’s Capitol for one year. They will also be awarded two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, D.C., courtesy of Southwest Airlines, to attend a reception with other talented young artists at the unveiling of their works in the Capitol.

Detailed guidelines for the competition can be found here on Rep. Eshoo’s website.

The President should heed these words and forcefully call out the hatred of these white supremacists. https://t.co/8ZLqGICSF0
