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.
