Pitman High School is home to some of the top artists in the 10th Congressional District, and they have the hardware to show for it after Pride students recently took home the top three spots in the Congressional Art Competition.


Ocaranza’s “Ramephant” will represent California’s 10th Congressional District in the Cannon Tunnel, which leads visitors to the U.S. Capitol Building, and will hang alongside the winning entries from every congressional district in the United States for the next year. As the overall winner of the competition, he will be invited to Washington, D.C. this summer to be honored at a reception for winning students at the U.S. Capitol, where the national winner will also be announced. Mello and Doo’s artwork will be hung in Congressman Jeff Denham’s Modesto office.
