Rep. Anna Eshoo announces congressional art competition


An annual art competition is now open to students in California's 18th Congressional District, according to the office of Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto.

The competition opened last week and high school students can submit entries until April 23. The winner will have their artwork displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year and will receive two round-trip airline tickets to Washington.

In Washington, the winner will attend a reception with other winning artists at an unveiling of their works in the Capitol.

Since 1982, more than 650,000 high school students across the nation have participated.

"I'm proud to keep this tradition flourishing by launching the 2015 competition in California's 18th Congressional District, and I encourage students to participate," Eshoo said in a statement.

The art entries can be submitted at Eshoo's Palo Alto office at 698 Emerson St. no later than 5 p.m. on April 23.

All entrants and the district's winner will get to participate in a local reception to honor them all, according to Eshoo's office.
