Arts competition open to high school students

High schools in California’s 29th Congressional District are invited

to submit three entries in an annual Congressional Arts Competition,

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) announced.

Matted entries will be accepted until April 18. Students


interested in participating should contact their art teacher for

contest guidelines and further details.

Judging is on May 5 at Friends Hall at the Huntington Library, Art

Collections and Botanical Gardens, 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino. The


artwork display will open at 5 p.m., and an awards ceremony will

follow at 7 p.m. that day.

The winning entry will be displayed for one year in the U.S.

Capitol, and the winner, two family members and a teacher will fly

free -- courtesy of Southwest Airlines -- to attend an opening

reception in Washington, D.C.

The second-place entry will hang in Schiff’s Capitol office, and

the third-place entry will be on display in the congressman’s


district office in Pasadena.

For additional information on art entries, call Pearl Fu in

Schiff’s Pasadena office at (626) 204-2727.
