Congressman Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael, has announced the 2023 Congressional Art Competition is open for digital submissions from all high school students in California’s Second Congressional District, which spans from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.

   “The Congressional Art Competition is one of the best ways to showcase the artistic skills of young people across California’s Second District, and I’m excited to announce this year’s competition is now open for digital submissions,” Rep. Huffman said. “I’m consistently impressed by what the talented students from our region create, and I’m looking forward to another year of fantastic art from these young minds.”

    The winning artwork will be exhibited in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year alongside artwork from each Congressional District in the country. The winning student will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C. and will also be eligible for a scholarship to attend Savannah College of Art and Design (upon admission acceptance).

  Semi-finalist competitions will take place in each county. A district-wide competition will determine the winner of the Second District. Previous winners include: Zexuan Wu of San Anselmo (2022), Samuel Lopez of Fairfax (2021), Diya Patel of Ukiah (2020) and Eden Winniford of Cloverdale (2019).

   The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.

   To enter the competition, students must submit a completed entry form through Congressman Huffman’s website and email a picture of their submission with their name and school to ca2artsubmissions@mail.house.gov by Friday, April 21.
