Eshoo Launches Congressional Art Competition

February 28th, 2018

 

Palo Alto, CA— Today, Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) launched the 2018 Congressional Art Competition to discover and celebrate talented high school artists throughout California’s 18th Congressional District.

“Creativity and freedom of expression are bedrock American values,” Eshoo said. “For over 30 years the Congressional Art Competition has recognized and encouraged the artistic talent of high school students across our country, and I’m proud to advance this tradition by launching this year’s competition in our Congressional District.”

About the Competition

All high school students from 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 may submit their artwork for consideration by delivering it to Rep. Eshoo’s Palo Alto office at 698 Emerson Street by Friday, April 13th. A community reception will be held to honor all participants and announce the winner of this year’s competition.

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 U.S. Capitol Building for one year. He or she will also be awarded two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, D.C. and be invited to attend a reception at the Capitol with other talented young artists from across the country, where their artwork will be unveiled.

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