(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) is accepting submissions for the 2018 Congressional High School Art Competition. The theme for this year’s competition is based off the song America the Beautiful.
LaMalfa said: “Each year, I look forward to the artwork submitted by talented North State students for the Congressional Art Competition. It’s a wonderful opportunity for students to compete to have their art displayed in the United States Capitol. This year’s theme for our district, America the Beautiful, will demonstrate the patriotism of our communities and the love for country that we all possess in Northern California.”
The winning entry will be displayed for one year in the United States Capitol as part of a nationwide exhibit dedicated to displaying the talents of young people representing each state. Information regarding the guidelines for the competition can be found here.
