One Last Thank You to Our Streetsie Winners and Sponsors for This Year’s Awards!

2020StreetsiesDinnerZoom

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:

Our awards this year were somewhat delayed because of the pandemic, we usually decide on awards in December and January, announce them in the winter, and celebrate them in the Spring. If you have any ideas on who we should be celebrating in 2021, please let us know in the comments or email me at damien@streetsblog.org.

Congratulations! The 2015 Streetsie Winners Are…

The moment of truth! The 2015 Streetsie winners are here! We are disappointed to say that there have been some glitches this year. Some glitches were our fault. I, Joe, not having used the poll feature much until these, my first Streetsies, take blame for these. The polls didn’t close when they were automatically supposed to.
