Rosemead High School senior Lin Pei Cheng was one of five finalists in the recent 4th Annual Congressional Artistic Discovery Art Competition.   The nation-wide high school art competition, open to all high school students, is sponsored by the Congressional Institute.   Members of the U.S. House of Representatives conduct the competition within their respective districts.
Cheng received an honorable mention for her acrylic painting entitled Peace, which depicts swans swimming in a peaceful pond setting.  She also received a $250 scholarship.
The award was presented at a luncheon ceremony with Congresswoman Judy Chu.      Cheng’s painting will hang in Chu’s Pasadena office for a year.
“We are very proud of Lin Pei on this accomplishment,” said Principal Larry Cecil.  “She is just one of the many talented art students we have at Rosemead High School.”
