LaMalfa said: “The Congressional Art Competition is a tremendous opportunity for talented high school students to compete to showcase their abilities to the entire country. This year’s theme allows our young artists to highlight the unparalleled beauty of the North State and our country. I’m especially interested in seeing art depicting antique era vehicles, steam trains or early diesels, early aircraft thru the 50s, vintage cars, etc. I look forward to seeing the winning artwork displayed in our nation’s Capitol building. Good luck to all those who will be competing!”
