Calling all artists!
Rep. John Garamendi’s office announces the annual Congressional Art Competition; he’s accepting entries from high school students who live in the 3rd Congressional District, which includes Davis. Last year’s winner was Henry Anker from Davis High School.
The congressman will assemble a panel of local artists to review all artwork submitted, and the winner’s work is featured at a yearlong exhibit in the nation’s Capitol. The winner and a chaperone also will receive a pair of airline tickets to Washington, D.C., for a ceremony unveiling the artwork, courtesy of Southwest Airlines.
Students may see further guidelines and download the entry form at http://garamendi.house.gov/how-can-i-help/art-competition. The students do not have to be enrolled in an art class to submit their work.
Submissions and entry forms must be dropped off by Tuesday, April 29, at one of Garamendi’s district offices: 412 G St. in Davis, 609 Jefferson St. in Fairfield or 990 Klamath Lane, Suite 4, in Yuba City.
Students, parents, teachers, or principals with questions should call Garamendi’s staff at the Fairfield district office at 707-438-1822.
