Congratulations to Olivia Foster from Roseville as CA-03’s winner for the 2023 Congressional Art Competition! Olivia’s piece “Priceless” will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol for the next year. The runner ups included “Ride to Freedom” by Olivia Spamer of Granite Bay and “Untouched Elegance” by Natalie Ang of Roseville.
Our office received submissions from 62 talented high school artists spanning the ten counties within California’s Third Congressional District: Plumas, Sierra, Nevada, Yuba, Placer, El Dorado, Sacramento, Alpine, Mono, and Inyo counties. The artwork was judged by an independent panel, including Grass Valley Mayor Jan Arbuckle and art professors from local colleges, and Rep. Kiley recognized the student artists at a reception hosted at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA.
The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide competition in which high school students can submit a piece of art to their congressman. One winner is selected by each of the 435 Members of Congress across the nation. Stay tuned for information on next year’s Congressional Art Competition, which will be released in Spring of 2024.
