Rep. Steve Knight (CA-25) announced Monday that the 2017 Congressional Art Competition is officially underway. High school students in California’s 25th Congressional District are invited to submit their artwork for a chance to see it displayed in the United States Capitol.

The Congressional Art Competition is an annual nation-wide arts competition for high schoolers sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Students from the Simi, Santa Clarita, and Antelope Valleys have until April 26th to submit artwork. The winner of this year’s Competition will receive complimentary airfare to Washington, D.C. for an unveiling ceremony this summer, where the artwork will be featured for an entire year.

“The Congressional Art Competition is a great opportunity for students in our community to showcase their artistic talent,” said Congressman Knight. “I look forward to seeing the outstanding pieces that our high schoolers submit this year.”

The competition is open to high school students that attend public or private schools, or are home schooled. The student must reside in California’s 25th Congressional District and be a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident. The winner will be announced on May 2nd at a reception held by KHTS Hometown Station at FastFrame in Valencia.
