Each spring, the U.S. House of Representatives sponsors the Congressional Art Competition to honor talented young artists from across the country. Rep. Levin encourages local high school students in California’s 49th Congressional District to participate so we can showcase our best young artists from North County San Diego and South Orange County. The winning artist will receive a cash prize and the art will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.
Due to the public health guidelines limiting in-person contact because of Covid-19, this year’s competition is being held virtually. Click these links to find the artwork guidelines and the required student information form. A digital photograph of the student’s art, along with the signed information form, must be submitted to our office by Friday, April 23, 2021.
For students in South Orange County, please submit digital images and information forms to Eileen Lee at Eileen.Lee@mail.house.gov.
For students in North San Diego County, please submit digital images and information forms to Milton Szyperko-Zuniga at Milton.Szyperko-Zuniga@mail.
A panel of judges appointed by Rep. Levin’s office will select the first, second, and third place winners. We will award the first-place winner with $500, second place with $300 and third place with $100. We will also cite a Fan Favorite based on votes cast on my Facebook page. I will announce all winners during a virtual event to take place the week of May 3, 2021. Details about that will follow at a later date.
