Rep. Maxine Waters seeking submissions for high school student art contest
Are you a high school student with artistic talent?
Rep. Maxine Waters is seeking submissions for the annual Congressional Art Competition. Winners will have their art displayed in the United States Capitol building for one year.
To win the competition in Waters' district, contestants must either live in or go to school in the 43rd Congressional District, which includes Gardena, Hawthorne, Inglewood, Lawndale, Lomita and the eastern portion of Torrance.
Through April 18 at 5 p.m., works can be dropped off at Waters' Los Angeles office at 10124 South Broadway, Suite 1, in Los Angeles. Students will also have to fill out a release form.
A panel of artists and art instructors will choose the winner. Submissions must be two dimensional. Acceptable mediums include paintings, drawings, collages, prints and photographs.
Most members of Congress participate in the art contest, so it is possible to submit work even without living in this district.
