Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Youth Art Contest. This year’s theme was “Riding the Bus with MTD.”

Artists in grades 1-6 participated through after-school programs, submitting over 200 colorful entries to the contest.  

Participating programs included the local branches of the Santa Barbara Public Library, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Goleta, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria; Girls, Inc. of Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria; and Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation’s Recreation After-school Program.

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!
