Dos Pueblos Senior Anke Gladnick Wins Congressional Art Competition

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, on Monday announced that Anke Gladnick, a Dos Pueblos High School senior, is the winner of the 2014 Central Coast’s annual Congressional Art Competition.

Anke’s winning piece, a digital illustration titled "Child’s Play," depicts a young girl as she runs through a field, clad in a cape and embellished by a colorful blue sky, clouds and seagulls.

“Anke’s artwork is simply stunning, and I find her use of color and contrasting landscapes to truly embody the beauty of the Central Coast,” Capps said. “I am proud to have her artwork showcased in the Capitol for the next year. It will be a beautiful reminder of home every time I pass it on my way to vote on the House floor.”

The annual art competition is open to all high school students in California’s 24th Congressional District. The winning student’s artwork is exhibited in the U.S. Capitol for one year, and the winning student receives two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C., to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception for the new display in June.

Anke’s piece was chosen by a panel of judges out of more than 40 entries.

Chris Meagher is the press secretary for Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara.

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!
