The winners of the Ventura County Fair poster contest were unveiled by James Lockwood at a presentation at the fairgrounds.
First place went to 12-year-old Vita Jolie Vasquez from Fillmore. Who stated “I’ve always been interested in art in the different forms of it, including the process and stages. That includes drawing and painting, video games and fashion. My ultimate goal would be to make a living out of my art. I’ve been drawing ever since I could hold a pen which was before I could walk.
The second place winner is 17-year-old Amy Midence from Oxnard. Who said “I’m an incoming senior at Channel Islands High School. I would like to become an orthodontist. My interests are painting, drawing, crafting, baking and cooking and taking my dogs on walks. This was my first time entering the poster contest. On my poster I used acrylic paint and paint markers.
