LaMalfa Accepting Submissions for Congressional Art Competition
Mar 30, 2017
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) announced he is accepting submissions for the 36th annual Congressional High School Art Competition. The theme for this year’s competition is The Thin Blue Line.
LaMalfa said: “The Congressional Art Competition is a tremendous opportunity for high school students from the Northstate to showcase their artistic abilities and creativity to the entire country. This year’s theme, The Thin Blue Line, allows our students to show their support and appreciation for our local law enforcement officers who represent the thin line between order and chaos. I look forward to seeing the submissions for this year’s competition.”
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.
