Ventura County Fair to Unveil Winners of Poster Contest

This year's top submission illustrated by 18-year-old Sam Coultas of Ventura

Please join the Ventura County Fair as we present the 2012 poster and introduce the young artists, all Ventura County residents, who have won the 2012 Ventura County Fair Poster Contest.

The theme of this year’s fair is “Rides, Ribbons & Rodeos,” and we are sure that you will agree that the 2012 poster conveys the theme beautifully.

This year’s poster was illustrated by 18-year-old Ventura resident Sam Coultas. The winning poster is a watercolor illustration of a bird’s-eye fair view, depicting Western rodeos, the traditional Ventura County Fair ribbons and the artist’s favorite carnival rides with the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands in the background.

The unveiling will be held at 10 a.m. July 6 at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, 10 W. Harbor Blvd. in Ventura, in the Administration Conference Room.

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!
