MyLA311 High School Contest - "Don't Trash CD 9"

Posted on 11/02/19

Voices Neighborhood Council

As part of continuous efforts to clean up South Los Angeles, Councilman Curren Price launched “Don’t Trash CD 9” - a local challenge targeting high school students for a chance to win $5,000. The competition pits 12 area schools against one another to see which students report the most illegal dumping, bulky-item pickup, and graffiti removal requests using the MyLA311 mobile phone app from Oct. 28-Dec. 9.

The school that records the most number of MyLA311 service requests will be the winner of the month. A winner will be announced every month for the remainder of the current school year through May 2020. Throughout the duration of the program, Councilman Price is expected to award about $30,000 to participating schools.

“One in three residents living in my District are under 18 years of age,” Councilman Price said. “I hope this friendly competition serves as a reminder that our youth are the future of South LA, and they have an enormous responsibility to their community.
“Whether they’re tackling climate change or fighting for gun control, time and time again, we have seen the power of our young people in action. What this contest aims to do is encourage them to be more environmentally conscious and spark a districtwide movement.”

The participating schools include: Dymally High School, John C. Fremont High School, Santee Education Complex, Orthopaedic Hospital Medical Magnet High School, Ánimo Jackie Robinson Charter High School, Thomas Jefferson High School, Ánimo Ralph Bunche Charter High School, Dr. Maya Angelou Community High School, Wallis Annenberg High School, Alliance Patti And Peter Neuwirth Leadership Academy, Manual Arts High School, and Augustus F. Hawkins High School.

Councilman Price says he thinks the award will serve as an incentive, mobilizing tech-savvy youth to do their part to clean up the areas around their schools, parks and neighborhoods.
“Using the MyLA311 mobile application is the quickest way to notify City departments of work needed to keep LA’s streets, sidewalks, and public areas clean and safe,” said Donna Arrechea, 311 Director. “Today more than 30,000 requests are submitted via the app every month. It's a way for Angelenos to take action and it helps City government become aware of problems so we can do our part.”

The high school competition is part of Councilman Price’s comprehensive and multifaceted “Clean & Green” initiative to promote cleanliness and improve livability for residents in District 9. Keep streets clean by utilizing the FREE MyLA311 mobile app, dialing 3-1-1 or via email at 311@lacity.org. More info at myla311.lacity.org
