We are excited to announce the winners of this year's My LA2050 Grants Challenge! The more than 300 submissions received this year inspire us. We are so thankful to the thousands of Angelenos who participated in the process by voting on their favorite ideas to make Los Angeles the best place to learn, create, play, connect, and live. 

Angelenos hold the key to shaping a more prosperous future for our region. And once again, My LA2050 submissions proved that fact. 

And the winners are...
