The Goldhirsh Foundation seeks public input to determine winners of the My LA2050 Activation Challenge. Public voting begins today.

Starting today, Angelenos can cast their vote to determine who will win the 2018 My LA2050 Activation Challenge, an open call for ideas that will activate 100,000 Angelenos to make LA the best place to learn, create, play, connect, and live. A total of $1,000,000 will be awarded among five organizations to carry out their proposal. Each organization will receive a total of $200,000 (over two years) and partnership from LA2050 in support of their efforts.

Five finalists have been selected in each LA2050 goal category that will engage Angelenos to make a specific, tangible impact by 2020. The Goldhirsh Foundation’s finalists for the My LA2050 Activation Challenge are:

LEARN

CREATE

PLAY

CONNECT

LIVE

*in alphabetical order by goal category


Public voting will close June 29th, and winners will be announced on July 9th.
