Sherman Oaks, CA - Congressman Brad Sherman congratulated Tyler Bailey from Cleveland High School, Emily Eisen from High Tech High School, and Leslie Lee from Cleveland High School.  These students placed first, second and third respectively in the 27th Congressional District Student Art Competition.

œThe work of all the participants is a magnificent representation of our many talented students in the San Fernando Valley.  The three winners in particular make me regret that the Capitol only has room for one piece of artwork, Sherman said.  œI commend all the students who entered the competition and express my congratulations to the contest winners.  I also want to thank our excellent panel of judges.

œI look forward to welcoming Tyler Bailey and his parents to Washington, DC for the unveiling of his digital photograph on June 14th.  As I walk the halls of the Capitol complex during this next year, it will be gratifying to see a small piece of the San Fernando Valley hanging on the wall, Sherman continued.

œI am also excited that all three winners will ride in the Canoga Park Memorial Day Parade on May 30th.  I look forward to meeting them at the parade, Sherman added.

The competition took place on May 21st and was open to all high school student in the 27th Congressional District.  There were 19 participants.  The event was judged by Stuart Vaughn of the Canoga Youth Art Center, Deane Leavenworth of Time Warner Cable, Dick Cooper of Telesis Credit Union, and Todd Brown of Channel 1 News.
