Capps Announces 2016 Congressional Art Competition

Rep. Lois Capps (CA-24) announced Monday, March 14, that she is seeking entries for the 2016 annual Congressional Art Competition. The competition offers all high school students in the 24th Congressional District the opportunity to have their winning work of art hang in the U.S. Capitol for one year, where thousands of visitors will see it.

“The annual Congressional Art Competition is a wonderful opportunity to support young artists,” Capps said. “I am continually impressed by the quality of artistic talent showcased by Central Coast students. I strongly encourage Central Coast high school students to submit their art for a chance to have their work displayed in the U.S. Capitol.”

The completed work must be submitted by a high school student in California’s 24th Congressional District to one of Rep. Capps’s local offices no later than 5 p.m. Friday, April 22, 2016.

The winning student will also receive two round trip airfare tickets to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception for the new artwork display in the U.S. Capitol in June 2016.

The Congressional Art Competition has specific guidelines that must be met in order for the work to be considered:

» Art pieces must be two-dimensional, no larger than 28 inches by 28 inches (including the frame),  and no more than 4 inches in depth (including the frame).

» The winning piece of artwork will hang in the Capitol for the entire year of the exhibition and cannot be returned to the student earlier. 

» Students should submit artwork they will not need for other purposes.  

» Each entry must be an original in concept, design and execution and may not violate any U.S. copyright laws. Please note: any entry which has been reproduced from an existing photo, painting, graphic, advertisement or any other work produced by another person is a violation of the competition rules and cannot be accepted.  

For more detailed information on competition guidelines, instructions and for entry forms, please visit Rep. Capps’s website.

C.J. Young is the press secretary for Rep. Lois Capps.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
