Washington, DC — Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) today announced the launch of the 2019 Congressional Art Competition for California’s 26th District. The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual arts competition that was started in 1982 to recognize artistic talent in each Congressional District.
“The arts and creativity play a critical role in young people’s lives and their educational success,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “I encourage all high school students who reside in the 26th Congressional District to participate in this year’s competition.”
Submissions are due to Brownley’s office by Wednesday, May 1, 2019. A panel of local artists will select the winner, and the winning artwork will be publicly displayed at the U.S. Capitol Building for a year. The winning student and one adult will also be flown to Washington, DC for the awards ceremony.
