One Last Thank You to Our Streetsie Winners and Sponsors for This Year’s Awards!
Last night, a group of two dozen activists, civil servants and elected leaders gathered on Zoom to celebrate the 2020 Streetsie Award Winners for Streetsblog Los Angeles. Apparently, there was some other event going on at the same time, a hockey game or something, but we still gathered together to celebrate our winners and enjoy a moment of happiness during these crazy, crazy times.
As has become a tradition these last few years, our team bestows titles on all our award winners to memorialize their mighty achievements. For those of you who missed out because you chose to watch the curling event instead last night, here’s your 2020 World Streetsie Champions:
