Congressional art winner

Tracy High School student Kaylee Harvey received the grand prize award for the 2019 Congressional Art Competition in the 10th Congressional District from Rep. Josh Harder.

High school artists in Tracy can now enter the annual 2020 Congressional Art Competition.

Rep. Josh Harder, who represents Tracy, is accepting submissions for the art competition sponsored by the House of Representatives and the Congressional Institute.

A wide variety of original two-dimensional artwork is eligible, including paintings, drawings, collages, prints, mixed media, photography and computer-generated art. More entry rules and forms can be found at www.house.gov/educators-and-students/congressional-art-competition.

Each participating member of Congress will choose a winning piece that will be displayed for a year in a corridor that leads to the U.S. Capitol along with other winning submissions from across the country.

The second-place entry from Harder’s 10th District will be displayed in his Washington office, and the third-place winner will be hung in his Modesto office.

Entries are due April 28. For more information, call Harder’s Modesto office at 579-5458 or visit his website.

Rep. Jerry McNerney, whose 9th District includes Mountain House, canceled his participation in the competition this week in light of the closure of schools to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

For more information, call McNerney’s Stockton office at 476-8552 or visit his website.
