WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-46) will host her annual Congressional Art Competition Reception on Monday, May 2, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. PST to recognize the exceptional artwork created by students of the 46th Congressional District for the annual Congressional Art Competition.

The reception and awards ceremony will be held at the Garden Grove Courtyard Center, 12732 Main St, Garden Grove, CA. The winners will be publicly announced on the day of the reception, May 2, 2016. The winning artwork will be displayed in the United States Capitol for one year, along with winning pieces from other Congressional districts nation-wide.

“The Congressional Art Contest showcases and encourages the artistic talent of Orange County’s young artists and provides a national platform for their artwork,” said Rep. Sanchez.  “I’m proud of the talent and creativity of winners from previous years and I look forward to seeing this year’s winning artwork in the halls of Congress.”

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