High school students in Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties can participate in the Congressional Art Competition by submitting entries to the Office of Rep. John Garamendi.
The Congressional Institute has organized a nationwide high school art competition since 1982. The selected art pieces are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol. The winners will be invited to Washington, D.C., for the awards ceremony.
"I encourage all 3rd District high school students with an interest in art to submit a work," said Garamendi in a prepared statement. "Who knows? The next Picasso, Rembrandt, or Georgia O'Keeffe may be a Northern California high school student."
Students interested in submitting artwork or with questions can contact Garamendi's office at (530) 753-5301.
