This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women. It’s our job to pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care.

CALLING ALL STUDENT ARTISTS: Attention all high school student artists and their teachers in the Fourth District — I’m looking for participants to enter our 2011 Congressional Arts Competition, the annual arts extravaganza celebrating the community’s best young artists. The deadline for entries is April 14 and must be completed according to the competition guidelines, which are on my WEB SITE. In addition to having your artwork at the Capitol for a year, winners will be eligible for college scholarships from the Art Institute of Atlanta ($10,000, $5,000, and $2,500) or the Savannah College of Art and Design ($1,500 per year).

VETERANS EXPO: We owe our service members, their families and all our veterans an immeasurable debt. To ensure they receive their full benefits, I’m holding a Veterans and Armed Forces Expo on Friday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at DeKalb Technical College in Clarkston in conjunction with DeKalb County. Veterans, military personnel and their families will receive free information about available services and on-site assistance with benefits, including employment opportunities, housing, health care, education and filing Veterans Administration claims. Veterans and their families from throughout the Fourth District are welcome!

The expo will be held in the college’s main Conference Center. Participating veterans can register and receive more information at our Veterans Home page of the Web site: hankjohnson.house.gov/veteran-index.shtml. Pre-registration is encouraged. To register, Click HERE.

KIDS & HEALTHY FOODS: The USDA will expand assistance to state agencies for schools operating USDA’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) for the 2011/2012 school year. The investment is part of the Obama administration’s efforts to improve the health of our children by providing access to nutritious meals in schools and also serves as a valuable resource to schools that continue working to improve the health and nutrition of the foods they serve. The assistance will provide free fresh fruit and vegetables to children throughout the school day. For more, click HERE.

Please share this e-letter with friends and family who live in the Fourth District and encourage them to sign up to receive these free online newsletters. Also, follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
