FAIRFIELD — A call has been put out for high school students to take part in an art competition sponsored by the U.S. Congress.
“The Congressional Art Competition is one of my favorite programs of the year because it showcases the incredible artistic capabilities of students from our district,” Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena, said in announcing the competition.
Thompson represents the 4th District. Other districts in Solano County are the 7th and 8th districts, represented by Reps. Doris Matsui, D-Sacramento, and John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, respectively.
The district winners will have their art put on display at the U.S. Capitol. The deadline to submit an entry is April 19 to any of the congressional offices in the districts.
A panel of local artists and art experts will make up the judging panel. The winners will be announced in May.
