Congressman Doug LaMalfa announced he is accepting submissions for the 40th annual Congressional High School Art Competition. The theme for this year’s competition is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. America’s Open Roads and Open Skies.
“The Congressional Art Competition is a tremendous opportunity for talented high school students to compete to showcase their abilities to the entire country,” LaMalfa said. “This year’s theme allows our young artists to highlight the unparalleled beauty of the North State and our country. I’m especially interested in seeing art depicting antique era vehicles, steam trains or early diesels, early aircraft through the 50s, vintage cars, etc. I look forward to seeing the winning artwork displayed in our nation’s Capitol building. Good luck to all those who will be competing!”
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 at lamalfa.house.gov/services/art-competition.
