Culver City High School’s Michelle Bac was recently selected to receive first-place honors in the 2012 Congressional Arts Competition.
Her submission, “A Face,” was selected to be included in a special student art exhibition that will be on display in the U.S. Capitol for the next year.
“Michelle will have an opportunity to attend an unveiling ceremony with Members of Congress and special guests this summer in Washington, D.C.,” said Congresswoman Karen Bass, who represents Culver City.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual arts competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. The competition provides an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents.
Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of local artists in each district select the winning entries.
Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual Awards Ceremony in Washington, DC. Since it began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
