Local U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell is calling all high school art students in his district to show him their talents and enter into his 2019 Congressional Art Competition.
Open to high-schoolers living anywhere in the 15th Congressional District (which includes Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore and San Ramon in the Tri-Valley), the competition allows teens to show off their original artwork for a chance to have their work displayed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. for one year.
Submissions are due by 4 p.m. April 19. A full list of rules and regulations can be found at https://swalwell.house.gov.

Chin's other prior experience included time working for a nonprofit public policy research think tank, a member of the U.S. Congress and another member of the State Assembly. She was also a Jesse Unruh Assembly Fellow.
