Congressman Panetta announces 2017 Congressional Art Competition

Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday the annual Congressional Art Competition for high school students. High schools throughout California’s 20th Congressional District are invited to participate by submitting up to five pieces of original student artwork. Exceptions will be made for schools that have 7th through 12th grades on one campus. All submissions are due by May 1, 2017.

The winning entry will be displayed in the corridors of the Capitol in Washington, DC. The winner and a family member will also be invited to attend a special ceremony with other young artists from around the country in Washington, DC at the end of June.

The Congressional Art Competition encourages and recognizes the rich artistic talents of young Americans. Students are allowed to submit various styles and types of art, ranging from paintings and drawings to photography and mixed media pieces. The winners will be determined using criteria based on originality, skill of execution, excellence in use of materials and conceptual strength of the project.
