This annual competition is open to all high school students that reside or attend school in the 43rd Congressional District and offers students a chance to showcase their artistic talent and compete to have their submission displayed in the United States Capitol for a full year, said a Waters spokeswoman.
“I am again pleased to announce the Congressional Art Competition to the young artists of California’s 43rd Congressional District,” said Waters, who also represents Playa del Rey, Del Rey and Mar Vista. “I look forward to seeing the winner’s artwork represent California and our district in the U.S. Capitol.”
Entries may be dropped off or mailed to the congresswoman’s Los Angeles office, 10124 S. Broadway Suite 1, Los Angeles, CA, 90003.
The competition is open to high school students only. However, exceptions may be made for schools that have seventh through 12th grades on one campus.
