Congressional Student Art Competition Offers Honors to Maung and Ward

Applause to Culver City High School student Haifa Maung, who won first place in the annual Congressional Student Art Competition and was honored at a reception last night hosted by Congresswoman Sydney Kamlager-Dove that recognized all student entries from California’s 37 District. She is pictured with the Congresswoman, CCUSD Board Vice President Kelly Kent and Member Triston Ezidore.

Maung won first place for her piece, “Alienation,” and will be flown to Washington DC, where her work will be hung in the Capitol for one year with other student artwork from around the nation. She made a moving speech about mental health and trauma and the power of art.

CCHS student Andrew Ward was also recognized as a runner up. It was his second time being recognized – he was a runner up in 2021 for his piece, “The Story of Icarus.”

At the end of the night, the gallery director announced that all student entries will be hung for a show later this summer. Congratulations to all the CCHS students who entered the competition:
