Noah Endo, a senior at Paramount High School, has been named first-place winner in Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard's (CA-40) 25th Annual Lucille Roybal-Allard Student Art Competition.
Endo prevailed with his piece "A Growing Threat."
The 139 entries submitted for the art competition were judged on originality, technical skill, artistic presentation, and use of color and contrast.
In addition to a scholarship and art supplies, Noah wins a trip to Washington, DC, with a parent to attend the national exhibit opening. His entry will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. Also, 1,000 posters featuring his artwork will be distributed to schools and organizations throughout the 40th District to inspire other young artists to participate in next year's competition.
