On May 17, winners of the 44th Congressional District Art Competition were honored at Crafted at Port of Los Angeles. This year, Rep. Janice Hahn’s office received submissions from more than 100 high school students from across the district.
The winners included Angelica Macias, a Compton High School senior who won the competition with her silk portrait titled “My Friend Mirna.” Her work will be displayed in the United States Capitol for the next year beside the winning works from every district in the nation. Angelica also won a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the installation ceremony for her work.
Lynwood High School student Gabriela Gonzalez placed second and Compton High School student Geovanny Juarez from Compton High School placed third in the competition.
The winners were selected by a panel of judges made up of various renowned artists from across Los Angeles and Long Beach. The student art work will remain up at Crafted until June 8.
