Artistic Discovery - the Congressional Art Competition

 

** 2014 Winners Announced -- Click Here for Information ** 

 

2014 "Proclaim Liberty" Art Competition

Each spring the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. 

The winning entry from each congressional district across the United States is displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol.  The winning student from each congressional district is invited, along with one guest, to the unveiling of the exhibit and a reception in Washington, D.C. and is provided two round-trip airline tickets for the occasion.  

The 2013 contest winners may be viewed on the U.S. House Congressional Art Competition website.  In 2013 over 40 pieces of art from the 4th District were submitted for judging.  

The deadline to submit art for the 2014 competition will be Friday, March 28, 2014.  Please refer to the competition guidelines and student release form below when considering the competition.

Artwork entries should be delivered to Congressman McClintock's district office prior to the deadline. The district office is located at 8700 Auburn-Folsom Road, Suite 100 in Granite Bay, 95746.  The phone is (916) 786-5560.  This year the theme “Proclaim Liberty” is being added for the competition.  Students submitting artwork should be able to relate their work to the theme “Proclaim Liberty."

Remarks in Opposition to Authorizing the Arming and Training of FSA (Free Syrian Army)

All of us recognize the threat posed to our nation by the Islamic State. The question before us is whether to arm and train supposedly vetted elements of the Free Syrian Army as a proxy ground force.

Confronting the Islamic State

Contrary to the President's assertions last week, the Islamic State IS Islamic and it IS a state - or at least has all the attributes of a state. It is precisely this combination that makes it so dangerous: a messianic and clearly stated intention to wage jihad on American soil and the resources and equipment to do so.

Lake Tahoe Summit

I want to thank Senator Feinstein for hosting this year's summit and for directing its attention to the threat of catastrophic wildfire, the greatest natural threat facing the Lake Tahoe region.
