Vector Management District Unveils Winning Logo Designs

Submissions by Roberta Garner of Allan Hancock College and Adam Capdeville of Santa Barbara High take top honors

The Mosquito and Vector Management District of Santa Barbara County has announced the winners of its logo design contest.

“On behalf of the board of trustees, I congratulate Roberta C. Garner and Adam Capdeville for their winning logo designs,” board president David Pritchett said.

The district opened the contest to all high schools and colleges, public and private, throughout the county in April. The district received 128 logo designs from three schools: Allan Hancock College, Santa Barbara High and San Marcos High.

Garner worked with district administration to modify her submission at the request of the board of trustees. The modified design will be used by the district as its new logo and will be displayed on all district vehicles, uniforms, brochures and didactic materials, as well as letterhead, promotional materials and its Web site.

“We will display Roberta’s logo design proudly as the district works on improved public education and field activities that protect the public health as we keep the county safe from mosquitoes and other human disease vectors,” Pritchett said.

The winning high school design was submitted by Capdeville, who will receive a $200 scholarship. Capdeville, a student at Santa Barbara in the ROP program, designed his submission under the instruction of Lee Ann Knodel.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
