A friend to Heritage Square Museum, Congressman Becerra asked us to announce a great opportunity for high school artists.
Since 1982, high school students have participated nationwide in the Congressional Student Art Competition. Students will have the chance to compete for an all expense paid trip to Washington D.C. to participate in a national ceremony as well as other prizes. The winning artist will also be a part of an elite group of students who will have their artwork exhibited in the United States Capitol for one year.
Please visit Congressman Becerra’s website at http://www.becerra.house.gov for details. You will find a video clip of last year’s first prize winner describing the experience as well as other important information like the competition guidelines and release form. Our theme is “Los Angeles: What does your community look like?” and the deadline for submission of art pieces is Friday, March 22, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
