This was submitted as an idea to the Politifest 2012 Idea Tournament. VOSD members will vote on the best ideas and on Sept. 19 we’ll announce six contenders (Not a member? Join now to vote). At Politifest on Sept. 29, each of the six finalists will have five minutes to pitch their idea to a panel. The panel rates the ideas and two finalists advance. The crowd at Politifest will vote on a winner. The winner will receive an “idea-inspired” trophy custom-designed by former City Councilwoman Donna Frye. VOSD CEO Scott Lewis will also write about the winner’s idea.
Once a year purposefully blackout the entire city of San Diego on the darkest night of the month from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Ask everyone to go outside and look up, meet your neighbor, share the Milky Way and think about how great it is to live in a town that celebrates life by looking up.
Not a chance this gets in but you can win if you don’t enter.
