Congressional Art Competition:  

U. S. Congresswoman Jackie Speier is proud to announce:


It is with great enthusiasm that I announce two opportunities for high school students living in the 14th Congressional District that will challenge them both academically and artistically in unique competitions.

To encourage art education, the Congressional Art Competition gives high school students a chance to gain national recognition for their creative talents. Seventh and 8th graders who share campuses with high schools are also welcome to compete.

All artwork submissions mustbe received by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 14, 2014, at my district office located at 155 Bovet Road, Suite 780, in San Mateo, and must include a completed Student Information & Release Form, signed by the student, his or her parent/guardian, and his or her art teacher. To learn more about the Congressional Art Competition, please visit my website.

I am also proud to announce the first annual Congressional STEM Academic Competition, a.k.a. the “House App Contest.” This new competition is designed to engage students’ creativity and encourage participation in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Representing Silicon Valley – a hotbed of innovation – has convinced me of the importance of such initiatives that promote investment in STEM education, as well as legislation like H.R. 2426, the Educating Tomorrow’s Engineers Act, of which I am a proud cosponsor. We must prepare our students for employment in the high-tech industry and enhance American competitiveness in the global economy.

The House APP contest is also open to students eligible to enroll in high schools located in the 14th District, and to teams of up to four if at least two students reside in the 14th District. Students must register at StudentAppChallenge.house.gov and create an account at ChallengePost.comby April 30, 2014. Students can visit ChallengePostany time before then to submit their contact information, completed release form, and final app entry. Students can learn more about the competition and find resources for students and teachers on my website. For any additional information, contact Kenneth Dowling at kenneth.dowling@mail.house.gov or (202) 225-3531.

These are great opportunities to let creativity flow and produce tangible results!

All the best,

Jackie

CONTINUING EVENT NEEDING YOUR SUPPORT:

Water Conservation

The City of San Bruno, on their web page, writes:  “This past fall and winter has been one of the driest years on record across the state of California. At the State level, Governor Brown has declared a drought emergency and has asked California residents and businesses to reduce their water consumption by at least 20%.

 

“At the local level, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has issued a statement today requesting a voluntary 10% reduction on the SF Regional Water System in response to the dry weather conditions and to ensure that available water supplies are prudently managed.

 

“In coordination with this local advisory, the City of San Bruno is asking residents and businesses to conserve water to help meet the 10% voluntary reduction goal that will help preserve Hetch Hetchy’s and our own groundwater’s valuable resources.

 

“The SFPUC is closely monitoring water levels in the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir and snow pack data. Within the next 90 days, the SFPUC will have survey data from snow pack depths and reservoir resource levels throughout the SF Regional Water Supply to share with other water agencies. The data results will allow water agencies to develop their specific water supply strategies for the future. Residents of San Bruno are requested to follow water conservation practices at all times. The City will update residents on any changes made to the request of a 10% voluntary reduction when new information is available.

“Water Conservation Tips and additional information is available on the city’s website at  www.sanbrunowater.ca.gov and on Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency’s (BAWSCA) website at  http://bawsca.org/ “
