I was fortunate to be one of the 6 judges involved with this District 11 Congressional Art competition in Tracy. All of the contestants did an amazing job for those so young. They were all High School students and based their work on a theme of their choice. This made it much more difficult for the final 4 selection. I commend all of those who entered and hope next year more art teachers will be able to have the time to get involved in this worth while Art project for their students, as for some, Art is the only voice they have to express their thoughts and emotions.
