WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-Calif.) recently met with Darryl Naito, a Saugus High School Senior who won this year's Congressional Art Competition for California's 25th District for his piece entitled "Breaching," using the medium of block print on raw canvas.

The winning entry will be displayed on Capitol Hill for one year, along with entries from high school students across the nation.

"Darryl is very talented young artist who successfully won among spirited competition from other high school students in the district," McKeon said.

"I was pleased to see so many students participate and provide such beautiful works of art. It was a pleasure having Darryl and his family here in Washington, D.C., and to meet him firsthand as I am sure he has a bright future in art ahead of him," he said.

Capitol visitors will be able to see Natio's art alongside art by more than 400 others, representing every district in an exhibit located in a corridor between the Cannon House Office Building and the Capitol.

Special congratulations also go to runners-up Tyler Recchia, Valencia High School; Rachel Poleman of Hart High School; and Jessica DaBovich of Valencia High School.

The Congressional Arts Competition is open to all students in the 25th District.

The local date of the judging was May 13 at FastFrames in Valencia.

Serving as judges were Sandy Fischer, Carl Goldman, Margie Anne Clark, Shani Belisle, Paul Strickland, Zony Gordon and Suzette Martinez. Special thanks to AM 1220 KHTS and FastFrames of Valencia for being an integral part of this event.
