Washington, DC — Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) today announced the launch of the 2020 Virtual 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 are an essential part of a well-rounded and successful educational program,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “As we continue to follow remain at home orders, I encourage all high school students in California’s 26th Congressional District to participate in this year’s competition and showcase their talent which deserves to be recognized.”
