2014 Congressional Art Competition

Congratulations to Josh Corrigan from Sheldon High School for winning first place in this year’s congressional art competition! Josh’s art piece – Veteran Tom – received nearly 600 of your votes.  Josh will now receive 2 round trip tickets to Washington D.C. so he can see his art work displayed in our nation’s capital!

I’d also like to congratulate Kenneth Villaneuva from Florin High School for winning second place for his art work – the Wolf Inside – and to Jacqueline Tsang from Mira Loma High School for winning third place with her piece Our Common Humanity. I will proudly display their art work in my offices.

Every year, the Congressional Art Competition showcases the artistic skills of high school students from all around the country, and as a parent and an educator, I am proud my office takes part. I’d like to again thank all of the students, parents, teachers, and judges for participating in this extraordinary event. We had dozens of terrific entries this year and we have some remarkably talented students in our area.
