    Visit Oxnard Announces Winner of Hidden Gems Contest

    Oxnard, CA – Visit Oxnard recently held a contest for local residents to help uncover hidden gems in the city, asking the question — “Where would you take an Oxnard Visitor?” The community got to work and sent in many tips for a chance to win a prize package.

    After reviewing the dozens of submissions, Jennie Luna was announced as the winner of the Hidden Gems Contest.  She submitted suggestions on behalf of the students in Chicana/o Studies at California State University Channel Islands.

    Luna and her fellow students submitted tips on Oxnard’s lesser known agricultural gems including Oxnard Farm Park & Museum, the Community Roots Garden at 1801 Joliet Place, the Cesar Chavez House on Garfield Avenue, the American Sugar Beet Factory Plaque on 5th Street, and the Dr. Manuel M. Lopez Garden on A Street.  In addition, the students presented important historical sites, notable movements and even a newspaper!

    Luna has won a one-night stay at Hampton Inn Channel Islands Harbor, plus an excursion for two aboard Island Packers to Channel Islands National Park.
