In honor of Arbor Week, the City of Goleta is holding a drawing and photography contest to celebrate the beauty and majesty of trees.

The community is invited to submit artwork and photos of their favorite tree(s). This contest is open to everyone in Goleta and the surrounding communities.

Anyone of any age may enter. Both amateurs and professionals are invited to submit their work. You do not need to be a Goleta resident to participate.

There is no submission fee. The deadline to enter is 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20.

The City of Goleta’s Public Tree Advisory Commission will review the submissions and select the winners for both the amateur and professional categories. (A professional is defined as anyone whose primary occupation is photography or art.)

Winning artists will be notified on or around Feb. 28. Winning submissions will be exhibited in the Goleta City Council Chambers, and winners will be recognized at the March 4 City Council meeting.

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!
