The office of Congressman John Garamendi is now accepting submissions for the annual Congressional Art Competition. The deadline to submit artwork is 5 p.m. Friday, April 19.

All high school students who live in California’s 3rd Congressional District — which includes all or portions of Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties — are encouraged to submit their work. The winner will be selected by a panel of local artists and boosters of the arts.

“Art education improves cognition and helps our students achieve their creative potential,” Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, said in a news release. “I encourage all 3rd District high school students with an interest in art to submit a work. Who knows? The next Picasso, Rembrandt or Georgia O’Keeffe may be a Northern California high school student waiting to blossom.”

Since 1982, the Congressional Institute has organized a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation. More than 650,000 high school students have participated. The selected art pieces are displayed for an entire year at the U.S. Capitol, and the winners are invited to Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony.

Students interested in submitting artwork or with questions concerning the competition may call Garamendi’s Davis office at 530-753-5301. Art may be dropped off at the office, 412 G St. in downtown Davis.
